Establishment of Western City Aerotropolis Authority

The Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue has welcomed the establishment of the Western City and Aerotropolis Authority (WCAA), to be led by CEO Sam Sangster, announced today.

The new authority will be responsible for the master-planning of the Aerotropolis and also have a key role in driving investment, education and employment opportunities across the Western Parkland City, which includes Liverpool, Campbelltown, Penrith and Camden.

“The State Government, along with the Greater Sydney Commission’s Geoff Roberts, as Co-ordinator General of the Western City, have already kicked a number of goals in this growth precinct, and today’s announcement not only provides a more streamlined system of governance, but will help facilitate greater co-ordination and collaboration,” Chair of the Dialogue, Christopher Brown AM, said.

“The appointment of Sam Sangster as its CEO, formerly of Health Infrastructure NSW, and one of the country’s most respected bureaucrats, is a smart move and his experience in delivering major capital projects across both the public and private sectors will prove most valuable.”
