Oran Park and Turner Road Health Impact Assessment

Sydney South West Area Health Service and Camden City Council

In May 2007, the NSW Government released detailed draft plans to develop 12,000  new homes in Sydney’s south-west – with construction to start as early as 2008 in  Oran Park and Turner Road. It is anticipated that these plans will create healthy communities for families, with a mix of housing, jobs, schools, parks, transport, community facilities and shops. These precincts will offer a choice of accommodation including houses, terraces and units, to cater for singles, families and seniors. The Oran Park & Turner Road precincts are expected to provide 7,700 new jobs for Western Sydney – helping to achieve a key State Plan priority of more jobs close to home. Oran Park and Turner Road precincts are located in the Camden Local Government Area (LGA).

Sydney South West Area Health Service (SSWAHS) has been involved in the Greater Western Sydney Urban Development HIA with Western Sydney Region of Councils  (WSROC) and Sydney West Area Health Service (SWAHS), which assessed aspects of  the Sydney Metropolitan Strategy.  The Oran Park &Turner Road Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is seen as a valuable extension and application of this previous project.
