Region. In the top 20 suburbs

The decision by Barry O'Farrell to axe the first-home-buyers stamp duty concession for existing homes, in the State Budget, has come under fire for hurting the very people who helped put the Premier in office - Western Sydney residents. A breakdown of the top 20 suburbs, in The Daily Telegraph, which received the concession in 2010-11 shows 15 are in Western or South-Western Sydney, with the top three being Liverpool (590 people), Westmead (573) and Blacktown (478). Other suburbs in the top 20 included Parramatta, Campbelltown, Auburn, Homebush, Bankstown and Merrylands.
