Opportunity for employment
growth in Sydney’s south-west

Badgery’s Creek

Medich Corporation purchased 344 hectares of this precinct in 1997 and has since worked alongside adjoining landowners to progress the development of the site for employment use.

 

The former CSIRO land was earmarked as future employment land back in 1989, as part of the South Creek Valley Plan.

 

In 2007 it was also included in the Sydney Metropolitan Plan as part of the Western Sydney Employment Land Investigation Area. The plan noted that there was demand for zoned and serviced employment land, in particular for logistics, distribution, manufacturing and warehousing. It represents a prime opportunity to address the fact that 63% of the Penrith workforce currently need to seek employment outside their local area.

 

Extensive studies have been carried out to prove the suitability of the site. It is already cleared and has no significant conservation issues. It has the potential to be developed as a ‘Green Business Park’, using leading sustainability practices and providing a model for future large-scale industrial developments and creating badly needed higher order jobs, or a Research Foundation campus as a joint venture between USyd and UWS. The prime location is ideally located in the centre of Greater Western Sydney with major workforces within a 30min radius and easy access to the M7.
