Crafting Western Sydney's future

Shaping Future Cities

This report presents draft recommendations that were debated at a major Designing Western Sydney Summit event in August 2015.

Crafting Western Sydney's future

In this document Deloitte Access Economics has synthesised all the conversations we have conducted with Western Sydney’s key stakeholders to arrive at a set of draft recommendations – with the view of creating 200,000 great new jobs in Western Sydney by 2020.

The draft recommendations are arranged into three categories for generating employment in Western Sydney:

  • Platforms for growth: What are the foundations, or platforms, needed in Western Sydney that will enable other strategies for jobs creation?
  • Creating jobs: What are the specific industries and places where the best opportunities for jobs growth are expected to occur? What interventions will directly lead to better investment and jobs outcomes in the region?
  • Connecting people to jobs: How do we ensure Western Sydney’s labour market is adequately prepared to take advantage of local job opportunities and the jobs of tomorrow? This final set of recommendations will be critical in connecting growing local job opportunities to the people that live in Western Sydney.
