Next year’s Luddenham Show is on the 2nd and 3rd of March and the Show Society is currently looking for ideas for entertainment and attractions at the 2019 Show. If you have any suggestions, you can email them to secretary@luddenhamshow.com.au or on Luddenham Show’s Facebook page.

The Department of Planning and Environment have been working with all levels of government through the Planning Partnership to draft the Stage 1 Land Use and Infrastructure Implementation Plan (Stage 1 Plan) for the Aerotropolis.

This Plan provides an overview of proposed land uses, sequence of development as well as time frame for the land around Western Sydney Airport.

The Stage 1 Plan is now on exhibition. Feedback collected during the exhibition period will help inform more detailed planning work to ensure final plans for the Aerotropolis are shaped by the people who will be living and working here. I would urge all local residents to make a submission with your thoughts about the Stage 1 Plan for the Aerotropolis.

The exhibition period has been extended and you can provide feedback until 2 November 2018.

Several local land owners’ groups have now been organised – the Aerotropolis Agribusiness Action Group Bringelly as well as the WSA Agribusiness Landowner Group. Both these groups are very active, and some smaller groups of land owners have also been established. There is a lot of concern that so much of the area to the north and west of the Airport will be zoned Agriculture and Agribusiness.

The NSW Golf Open Championship returns to Luddenham over four days in November at Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club. Once again Luddenham will host the Championships, from Thursday 8 – Sunday 11 November. This event attracts the cream of Australia’s golfing elite along with some of the world’s best players. The tournament is decided over four rounds, at the end of which 156 players are whittled down to one winner. Not only can you see some of the best PGA golfers in action, this event offers spectators the unique opportunity to walk the fairways alongside the players.

Over the past month, Luddenham’s lack of sewerage has hit the news. Luddenham needs to have the sewer it has been promised for so long, but never delivered.

The early earth works on Western Sydney Airport are well and truly underway. To enable major earthworks at WSA, a 3.2km section of the TransGrid-owned 330kV single transmission line had to be laid underground, primarily along the perimeter of the airport site. All the Underground cables have now been laid and work on the transition towers and switching stations is well underway.

If you have an opinion on what Luddenham of the future should be like, please email your thoughts or views to willmingtons@bigpond.com.
