The Western Sydney City Deal is a partnership between the Australian Government, NSW Government, and local governments of the Blue Mountains, Camden, Campbelltown, Fairfield, Hawkesbury, Liverpool, Penrith and Wollondilly. 

 

The Australian and NSW governments both have plans for managing growth and delivering infrastructure in our cities. The Western Sydney City Deal delivers on the Smart Cities Plan and the Western City District Plan. 

 

The Smart Cities Plan 

The Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan sets out a vision for productive and livable cities that foster innovation, support growth and create jobs. City Deals are the key mechanism to deliver on this vision by bringing together the three levels of government, the community and private enterprise to create long-term partnerships. The plan for maximising our cities’ potential is based on three pillars: Smart Investment, Smart Policy and Smart Technology. 

The Smart Cities Plan represents a new framework for city policy at the federal level – and it is a framework that will support action across all levels of government to deliver better outcomes for our cities, the people who live in them and all Australians. 

 

Western City District Plan 

The Western City District Plan, prepared by the Greater Sydney Commission in collaboration with the eight councils of the Western City, is the blueprint for the coordination of land use and infrastructure in Sydney’s third city over the next 20 to 40 years. 

The plan implements the NSW Government’s Greater Sydney Region Plan at a local level, focusing on infrastructure, productivity, liveability and sustainability. 

 

The district will be polycentric, featuring a ring of university towns and a revitalised South Creek, providing greener, cooler neighbourhoods with housing diversity around centres and transit nodes. 

 

Digital Connectivity and Smart Technology 

 

1. Western City Digital Action Plan 

Local governments will lead the development of a Western City Digital Action Plan in collaboration with the Australian and NSW governments, and industry partners. 

 

2. Smart Western City Program 

The NSW Government will deliver a Smart Western City Program to enable NSW agencies to embed interoperable smart and secure technology – such as transport and utility monitoring systems – into new infrastructure as it is rolled out. 

3. 5G strategy 

The NSW and local governments will develop a 5G strategy for the Western Parkland City, which will include partnering with a telecommunications carrier to deliver a trial of 5G technology. 

 

4. Openly available data sets 

NSW and local governments will explore, identify and make data publicly available in line with open-data principles. To facilitate this, the Australian Government will establish a Western Parkland City data catalogue on data.gov.au and NationalMap, and support local governments to fully utilise the platform. Better access to local data has the potential to drive innovation and improved service delivery across the Western Parkland City. 

 

Digital Western Parkland City Industry Briefing 

Technology players big and small, local and international, are invited to co-develop the digital Western Parkland City and build a world leading Smart City. 

 

All members of the wider technology sector, from local innovators and researchers to international industrial providers are invited to help design one of Australia’s most connected cities. 

We want to hear about the latest available technology that complements and enhances major development projects. Our expectation is that connectivity, energy and utility management, smart phones, smart poles, personal applications and the issue of data to generate insight will be part of the digital Western Parkland City.
