Fairfield. New business park proposed

The Western Sydney Parklands Trust proposes the development of a site to be known as the Horsley Drive Business Park. The trust seeks approval for a staged development located at the corner of The Horsley Drive and Cowpasture Road, Wetherill Park, in the Fairfield local government area. The site, located immediately adjacent to the existing Smithfield-Wetherill Park Industrial Area, currently comprises 18 lots with a total combined area of approximately 21 hectares. The trust owns the majority of the land within the proposed application area with the exception of one lot which remains in private ownership.
