The transformation of Blacktown into a modern metropolitan centre has been a consistent focus of our Community Strategic Plan. Blacktown Central Business District (CBD) will be the focal point of a vibrant City: providing employment, housing, social, cultural, recreation and transport infrastructure within a framework of sustainability and design excellence. It is anticipated that an important part of the process will be engagement with and investment from key partners such as the NSW Government and the private sector.
The health precinct is part of the Blacktown City Centre redevelopment.
We will seek to realise and extend the benefits of the NSW Government’s $700 million investment in Blacktown Hospital. Council will work with the NSW Government and the private health sector to facilitate the co-location of a private hospital facility and allied medial health services within our identified medical health precinct adjacent to Blacktown CBD.
2036 statement – Where we will be
A private sector investment in a private hospital which helps address both the significant health issues faced by our community and an historical deficiency in health service provision in our City and the Western Sydney region.
Further investment in medical and allied health services in Blacktown City will facilitate a medical and research precinct, facilitating additional high-quality local employment opportunities.
Priorities for 2018/19
Our role in this project is to advocate and facilitate investment from the private sector.
Specialist health sector advice, incorporating detailed market analysis will inform ongoing dialogue with Blacktown Hospital, Western Sydney Local Health District and NSW Health Infrastructure and prompt interest from private sector investors.
