As part of the larger Oakdale Industrial Estate, Goodman is currently developing its 70ha Oakdale South Estate located in the logistics hub of Kemps Creek within the Western Sydney Employment Area.

Urbis has been working with Goodman to provide planning input into a range of concept and site specific State Significant Development Applications (SSDA) within the Oakdale Estate. This work included the preparation of a SSDA for a high tech warehouse and distribution centre for the storage and distribution pharmaceutical products associated with Sigma’s NSW operations. The facility will be a significant distribution facility for Sigma within NSW.

The proposed use is aligned with the ultimate vision for the OSE to develop as a high quality, regional warehouse and logistics hub which maximises the employment generating potential of the land to create an efficient, attractive and productive employment zone for Western Sydney.

Urbis undertook the planning work for the SSDA in close consultation with Goodman, Sigma and the Department of Planning to secure approval in July 2017.

The development of the OSE supports the strategic significance of the Western Sydney employment area which is the largest and fastest growing employment area in Sydney
