Western Sydney Parklands

Future Directions Paper Consultation


Western Sydney Parklands is a place for people of all backgrounds to meet, celebrate, learn, play and appreciate the environment. The Parklands will be a venue for communities to create and manage a sustainable legacy for generations to come.

Future Directions Consultation

Western Sydney Parklands is Sydney’s biggest backyard and we want you to help shape its future. Throughout August 2017, there will be a number of opportunities for you to have a say, both in person and online.

What is the Project About?

The Western Sydney Parklands Act 2006 requires that a Plan of Management be prepared for all public land within the boundary of the Parklands. 

The Plan of Management 2020, which we developed in 2011, is now up for review. We want you to be involved to help shape this next step in implementing the long term Parklands vision.

As part of the review we have developed a Future Directions Paper to prompt a discussion about the future of the Western Sydney Parklands. Your feedback and suggestions on the Future Directions Paper will ultimately shape the Plan of Management 2030 and the Parklands’ future.

What’s happened to date?

• The Western Sydney Parklands Act 2006 established the Western Sydney Parklands Trust as a self-funded agency in 2006.

• The Parklands Plan of Management 2020 was adopted in 2011.

• Parklands Plan of Management 2020 Supplement was adopted in 2014.

• Review of Parklands Plan of Management 2020 commenced in 2017.

What's next?

• Consultation on the revised Plan of Management in the second half of 2017, commencing with the Future Directions Plan.
