Western Sydney will accommodate hundreds of thousands of new homes in years to come, yet, it also contains some of our city's most precious bushland and wildlife, including Sydney's last remnant populations of Koala.
The NSW Department of Planning recently announced it will spend the next 12 months developing a Strategic Sustainability Plan for 7 Western Sydney Local Government Areas, which will identify upfront which areas of bushland will be conserved and which will be developed. The 7 Local Government Areas affected by this decision are: Campbelltown, Camden, Fairfield, Hawkesbury, Liverpool, Penrith and Wollondilly.
The Total Environment Centre believes that this is the last chance for the remaining Western Sydney bushland and green corridors and we are committed to working with local communities to get the best possible conservation outcomes.
On Thursday 16 November, Join us to hear what the Department's plans mean for the future of Western Sydney bushland and what you can do to help secure a vibrant future of Western Sydney bushland and wildlife.
