A proposal to create a new suburb

We recently lodged a submission with the Geographical Names Board for a proposal to create a Bradfield suburb in the Western Parkland City. The proposed suburb will include portions of the existing suburbs of Bringelly and Badgerys Creek and will surround the Bradfield City Centre. The NSW Government recently announced a $1 billion investment in the Bradfield City Centre to deliver early infrastructure such as the first building, parks and utilities.

The proposal follows on from the NSW Government's announcement in March 2021 regarding the naming of the new Bradfield City Centre.

The proposed suburb of Bradfield covers around 1,700 hectares of land from Badgerys Creek waterway and a new road proposed to the north of Fifteenth Avenue, South Creek in the east, Bringelly Road in the south and Bringelly's existing boundary and The Northern Road in the west. It will take in parts of the existing suburbs of Bringelly and Badgerys Creek within the Liverpool City Council local government area.

 

 

If you are a resident in the proposed suburb, a letter has been sent to you outlining our proposal and the GNB process. Please contact us if you did not receive this letter.

If the GNB agrees to assess the name "Bradfield" for the proposed new suburb, it will notify the community via an advertisement in the Daily Telegraph and post our application online for feedback at www.gnb.nsw.gov.au. If our submission is approved there will be no change to any street names and the naming process is likely to be completed in late 2021.

If you would like to speak with us at the Western Parkland City Authority about this proposal, our ideas for the new Bradfield City Centre or the Western Parkland City, please email us hello@wpca.sydney or telephone 1800 312 999.

About the Geographical Names Board

The Geographical Names Board is an independent government agency that administers place names within NSW. Its role is to assess whether suggested place names are appropriate.

More information about the Geographical Names Board and how it assesses proposed place names can be found at www.gnb.nsw.gov.au.

Everyone who sees their future businesses, jobs and lives in the Aerotropolis should have a voice in helping to form it. There will be many opportunities to do so.

Welcome to Australia's first 22nd century city - Bradfield, a high-tech city centre on the doorstep of the Western Sydney International Airport.

[Music]

Connected by a Metro rail line, as well as roads and active transport links, Bradfield will be an energetic place with life, culture and public spaces. Bradfield will attract the country's brightest minds with opportunities at the national science agency, the CSIRO and a world-class advanced manufacturing research facility where businesses can design and test ideas. This will all be supported by intelligent digital networks.

Bradfield will be a key Indo-Pacific hub, connected globally via the airport and locally with the existing centres nearby. At the centre of it all is Bradfield which is perfectly placed to be the beating heart of the Western Parkland City.
