The Hills Shire Council has prepared a Draft Precinct Plan for the Norwest Strategic Centre, which sets a 20-year Blueprint vision for growth and will help provide space for tens of thousands of local jobs.
Council recently resolved to proceed to community consultation with the Draft Precinct Plan for the Norwest Strategic Centre, which extends beyond the suburb of Norwest and the historical business park boundaries, encompassing land from Old Windsor Road in Bella Vista through to Showground Road in Castle Hill.
The Draft Precinct Plan identifies actions to increase employment by 30,000 jobs across a diverse range of sectors, which will take the Centre’s employment capacity up to approximately 64,000 jobs.
Council also plans for infrastructure upgrades to support growth and provide even greater connectivity to local roads, transport networks and footpaths and cycleways.
“Norwest Strategic Centre will remain a destination of choice for employers to base their business – now and in the future,” General Manager of The Hills Shire Council, Michael Edgar said.
“This blueprint aims to increase the jobs available in the Precinct, including along the business spine in Carrington Road and its planned extension from Victoria Avenue to Windsor Road. We’ve also envisaged more businesses to be located along Old Windsor and Windsor Roads, as well as greater opportunity for commercial outcomes in the Cattai Creek West Area.
