SYDNEY SCIENCE PARK

Research labs to kick-start project

THE Department of Planning and Environment has agreed to public consultation on Baiada’s proposal for a 280-hectare master planned Sydney Science Park, at Luddenham.

The centre would be used for research, development and education in the food security, energy and health sectors.

“These are exciting times,” said Penrith Mayor, Ross Fowler.

“We’re on the threshold of a New West. One that has good roads, good jobs and support for the people who choose to live in one of the fastest growing regions in Australia."

Clr Fowler said Baiada had committed to develop its own food and research laboratories and headquarters to kick off the Sydney Science Park.

“This commitment will create an initial 200 jobs on the site by 2016,” he said. “Ultimately the park will have the capacity for 12,200 jobs and 10,000 students.”

Clr Fowler said the science park would attract the world’s leading scientific professionals and organisations to Western Sydney, and alongside the major infrastructure commitments recently announced by the federal and state governments.

They would be a catalyst for high quality development in the Broader Western Sydney Employment Area.

“Increasing jobs, particularly, high-end knowledge jobs in the city are a high priority for council,” Clr Fowler said.
