The Western Parkland City Liveability Program is a key commitment under the City Deal and has been established with contributions of $60 million each from the Australian and NSW governments, and $50 million from the eight Councils of the Western Parkland City.
The Program will support the growth of the Western Parkland City by providing essential community infrastructure. Projects will contribute to more liveable communities and deliver local facilities that promote healthy active lifestyles and support the arts, culture and creativity.
In January 2019, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure and the Hon Stuart Ayres MP, NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, jointly announced projects valued at up to $149.82 million under the first round of the Program. These projects will provide vital community infrastructure and public spaces across the Western Parkland City, including parks, sporting facilities, rejuvenated town centres and art and cultural event spaces.
Ministers have recently announced a second round of the Program. Round two applications are open from 5 August 2019 to 2 September 2019 for Councils (Blue Mountains City, Fairfield City, Liverpool City, and Wollondilly Shire) that did not subscribe to the full funding amount in the first round.
