NSW New plan UPDATES East Leppington Precinct.

East Leppington Precinct.

East Leppington 

East Leppington Precinct was one of two precincts released for planning in November 2011 by the Minister for Planning & Infrastructure.
The 463-hectare precinct sits across three local government areas – Campbelltown (64 per cent), Liverpool (23 per cent) and Camden (13 per cent). 
It is bounded to the west by Camden Valley Way and St Andrews Road to the south. Its northern boundary is formed by a water canal from Camden Valley Way to Denham Court Road. 
Approximately three-quarters of the Precinct is in single ownership, however there are also small rural holdings, market gardens, bushland and some residential areas. 
Fully developed, East Leppington is expected to accommodate some 3,000 dwellings and approximately 8,000 future residents.
East Leppington Precinct is being planned simultaneously with the adjoining Leppington Precinct.
Both Precincts sit south of the South West Rail Link and Leppington North Precinct, which is currently being planned to include a future Major Centre and railway station.
The simultaneous release of Leppington and East Leppington Precincts represents a logical progression because of their proximity to transport and a planned Major Centre at Leppington.  
Future residents will be able to access Camden Valley Way and the South West Rail Link, and support the early development of the Leppington Major Centre.
