Campbelltown City, a Strategic Centre of Sydney at the epicentre of one of the most significant growth corridors in NSW, is an emerging Health and Medical University City. The city is a hub of economic, education, health, sport and recreation, advanced manufacturing, retail and commercial services.
Campbelltown’s strategic location is chief among the city’s many advantages. Boasting extensive public transport links and road networks, Campbelltown is ideally located with direct road and rail links to Sydney CBD, Sydney International Airport, the Illawarra region and Canberra.
Campbelltown has the capacity to grow towards a population in excess of 300,000 – under current planning provisions. This growth is transforming the city into a vibrant, self-sustainable urban centre, with strong business and community partnerships.
The city already boasts significant existing infrastructure and services, including a major hospital, a university campus – Western Sydney University, Campbelltown Campus – three south west Sydney Institute of TAFE campuses, the largest shopping centre in south west Sydney – Macarthur Square, professional sporting facilities, regional art and cultural venues, and is well positioned to support the growing south west Sydney region, and attract a further range of industry and development.
Campbelltown City Council is committed to working in partnership with key stakeholders to create a smart city that facilitates job creation, investment, business growth and innovation.
City of Parramatta
City of Parramatta is a thriving cosmopolitan city in the demographic and geographic heart of Sydney with access to important amenities such as a strong public transport network, education facilities, healthcare, jobs, restaurants, cafes, shops, parks and open spaces, and arts and cultural offerings.
Bordered by the boundaries of the M2 motorway in the north and the M4 in the south, the City of Parramatta covers an area of 82sq km and services almost 216,000 residents.
City of Parramatta encompasses the economic hubs of the Westmead Health precinct, the Parramatta CBD, the whole of the Epping Town Centre and Sydney Olympic Park. The ability for people to live, work, learn and relax within and in close proximity to Parramatta is a big drawcard.
Within the next 15-20 years there is predicted to be an additional one million people living in Western Sydney. Parramatta will be the commercial hub for this additional population, which is driving business and infrastructure growth in the region.

NSW Department of Planning and Environment
We exist to make people’s lives better by making NSW a great place to live and work.
We help to provide homes and services, build great communities, create jobs and protect the environment by creating plans for the future of regions and local areas, revitalising urban areas, providing land for new homes, services and open space, assessing important projects to ensure the need for new jobs is balanced with the needs of the community and environment, and developing policies that guide planning activity for government and local government across NSW.
Macroplan are economists. And we are planners. Complex projects require integrated economics and planning solutions, and our strength in both disciplines means we can provide that.
We are able to bring a different perspective to development projects and create more innovative responses. Often, we solve problems before they’ve been identified by the developer. Always, we improve project outcomes because our integrated approach means we see things in new ways.
Founded in 2014, Orange Sky provides free mobile laundry and shower services via custom built vehicles to those in need, whilst creating an inclusive environment through positive and genuine conversation.
Initially a crazy idea by best mates Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi, in a mission to improve hygiene standards, Orange Sky has stumbled across something much bigger and more significant – the power of conversation and connection.
Now expanding to almost every capital city across Australia, Orange Sky has over 700 volunteers, 14 laundry and shower vehicles and fosters more than 1300 hours of genuine conversation and connection every week.
PIA hopes to raise $25,000 for Orange Sky this year, an ambitious target but one that would go one that would go a long way to providing free showers, laundry services and above all, genuine conversation for people living roughall around Australia.
It cost’s $6 to wash and dry someone’s clothes, so reaching our target of $25,000 would mean providing over 4000 washes across Australia to those doing it tough!
You can help PIA reach our target by purchasing one or more Orange Sky t-shirts for $25 each. They’re 100% cotton and printed by Orange Sky’s ‘friends on the street’, so they’ll make you feel great inside and out! We’ve kicked off the fundraising with 20 T-shirt purchases, and you’ll see our staff members wearing them throughout Congress.
There are two ways you can purchase your own Orange Sky T-shirt:
- Pre-order your shirt online and pick it up at the OrangeSky/MacroPlan exhibition booth at Congress Thursday 4th and Friday 5th May, or have it sent to you direct (additional postage charge)
- Buy one at the booth on the spot!
Note: While there’ll be a range of stock available at the event, we recommend pre-ordering if you want a particular size or colour as we can’t guarantee your preference won’t run out.
We will also be holding a raffle at the MacroPlan Gala Dinner – stay tuned for more information regarding this.
