Western Sydney Parklands

Plan of Management 2030

What is the Plan of Management 2030 (Draft) about?

The Plan of Management provides a framework for the operation and development of Western Sydney Parklands. As the current Plan 2020 is now seven years old, it is being reviewed to ensure that the vision, principles and initiatives remain relevant for the decade to come.

The first step of the review was to prepare a Future Directions Paper (FDP). This paper provided an overview of the Parklands and set the direction for revising the Plan. The FDP proposed ten key principles that would be used to guide the operation and development of the Parklands. Between August and September 2017 we asked park users, the community and stakeholders to give us their opinions and feedback on the FDP. You can find out the key themes people shared below.

Feedback received on the FDP was used to prepare a draft Plan 2030. Consultation on the draft Plan 2030 took place between 9 March and 9 April 2018, and the comments received are now being used to prepare the final document. Once prepared, the Plan of Management 2030 will be placed on public exhibition in mid-2018.

What consultation has taken place to date?

We consulted with park users, the community and stakeholders to get feedback and suggestions on both the FDP and Draft Plan 2030.

Consultation to date has included:

  • Stakeholder Focus Group Workshops with Local and State Government agencies and local businesses. 
  • Community Information Stalls were held at the Parklands Food Fest and in popular locations in, in, and around, the Parklands including Lizard Log, Bungarribee Park, Plough and Harrow and at Liverpool Westfield, Macquarie Street Mall and Fairfield markets.
  • 2,000 postcards to our neighbours in the Blacktown, Fairfield, Liverpool, Penrith and Cumberland local government areas.
  • Newspaper Advertisements: Participants were notified of consultation activities via advertisements in local newspapers such as the Blacktown Advocate; Liverpool Leader; Fairfield Advance; The Future (Arabic Newspaper); Australian Chinese Daily; and Dan Viet Newspaper.
  • Online forms and surveys: Submissions were made through the Trust’s website and social media channels for the duration of the consultation period.

All feedback received has helped to shape the Plan of Management 2030.
