300 PROPERTY LEADERS MEET

Trends around the airport precinct
THE Property Council of Australia’s recent Building the Western City breakfast brought more than 300 leaders in the property industry to Parramatta’s Bankwest Stadium to discuss emerging trends around the Western Sydney Airport precinct.
 Attendees heard from Sam Sangster, Chief Executive Officer of the Western City Aerotropolis Authority who outlined his organisation’s role in Western Sydney and the partnerships with the private sector to facilitate the greater economic development of the region.
 
Since its creation in November last year, the Western City Aerotropolis Authority has entered into more than a dozen Memorandums of Understanding with global leaders in the fields of aerospace, defence, advanced manufacturing, education and agribusiness.
 
On a recent trade mission to the United Kingdom, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres signed a Memorandum of Understanding with multinational defence company BAE Systems. The MoU is enables BAE Systems to assist in the delivery of space research and development facility within the aerotropolis.
 
The expert panellists at the event were challenged by questions around surrounding governance, infrastructure and industry investment decisions within the precinct. 
 
Sue Coleman, Executive Director for the Western Sydney City Deal updated attendees on the structures put in place through the City Deal, a joint agreement between federal, state and local government to enable better coordination of infrastructure and planning outcomes across the region.
 
Newly appointed Western Sydney Regional Director for the Property Council Ross Grove said this event was just the beginning of the Property Council’s expanded engagement across Western Sydney.
 
“We are in the process of finalising a list of foundation members for our Western Sydney Taskforce. Our industry contributes to one in ten jobs provided across the region – we are very much at the heart of building the Western Sydney of the future.” Mr Grove said.
