New town on the cards


May 19, 2018 by admin

A MASTER plan for about 10,000 new homes at “Wilton Junction” — which would see Wollondilly’s population jump by one third — will be developed after a Wollondilly Council decision last week.

The plan is being developed for the Wilton interchange in response to the state government’s housing review which called on land owners to nominate suitable sites to remedy the state’s housing shortfall.

Walker Corporation, Bradcorp, Lend Lease and Governors Hill Pty Limited have signed an agreement to develop a housing master plan to extend Bingara Gorge and develop Wilton south, Wilton Aerodrome (Sydney Skydiving Centre) and Wilton west.

Wollondilly mayor Col Mitchell said the four landowners had agreed to fund the master plan.

“The council intends for the master plan to address all land generally in the vicinity of the Picton Road and Hume Highway interchange at Wilton,” he said.

He said the housing plan would also create about 10,000 jobs.

“It is intended that the future development will reduce the need for local and nearby residents to commute,” he said.

Construction will not start until the state government signs off on the master plan and releases the land for development.

When the state government opened submissions last year it targeted developers who could deliver housing over the next three years.

Cr Mitchell said there would be an opportunity for people to have their say on the plans.

“A master plan for a new town at Wilton would deliver housing, jobs close to home, supporting infrastructure and services,” he said.

“Wilton junction aims to provide new homes to meet population growth and the affordability challenge, create more jobs closer to home and importantly, deliver integrated community infrastructure from the outset.”
