Fairfield City Council
Fairfield City Community Facility and Open Space Needs Study and Fairfield City Open Space Strategy
Sydney’s COVID-19 lockdowns highlighted inequities across Sydney and the value in quality public open spaces close to homes. This is particularly important in a place like Fairfield City – one of Australia’s most culturally diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged local government areas.
Within the next 20 years, the Western Parkland city is going to change dramatically around the future Western Sydney Airport. Planning for this change begins now to ensure that there are adequate community facilities and open spaces to support the community.
Between 2019–2020, Cred completed three place-based Community Facility and Open Space needs studies for Cabramatta, Fairfield and Parks Place, which culminated in a city-wide Needs Study and Fairfield City Open Space Strategy.
Working with Environmental Partnership and GLN Planning, the Open Space Strategy built on the Needs Study to develop a comprehensive and deliverable strategy to guide Council’s delivery and management of open space over the next twenty years.
