Draft Norwest Precinct Plan

Draft Norwest Precinct Plan (Solent Circuit Park Expansion).png

"A Plan for the evolution of Norwest as a thriving mixed use Strategic Centre and highly competitive employment precinct."

The Draft Norwest Precinct Plan sets the framework for Norwest to emerge as a thriving mixed use Strategic Centre and highly competitive employment precinct.

The vision builds on previous strategic work by Council and the NSW Government, including technical investigations focused on the Shire’s Strategic Centres that provide insight into their unique features, role and function in the Greater Sydney Region. The Plan is the next step and advances the planning into the finer grain, site specific detail to inform potential changes to planning controls and the infrastructure framework, which can occur in a logical and staged manner.

By 2041, the Draft Precinct Plan envisages Norwest Strategic Centre will be a prime location for knowledge intensive businesses focused on health, education, science, technology, finance and advanced manufacturing. Business will enjoy the proximity and ease of access to complementary services and facilities at nearby strategic centres of Castle Hill and Rouse Hill and the economic competitiveness offered by enhanced connections to Sydney CBD, Greater Parramatta and the Western Sydney Airport.

Norwest will be a key part of a linked network of strategic centres and prominent office markets that spans across the Sydney Region and will offer a range of employment opportunities suited to the highly skilled workforce that lives in The Hills Shire. 

The Draft Precinct Plan is now on exhibition until 31 July 2023 and you are invited to have your say via the online form at the bottom of this page.
