Leppington has changed so much in the past decade. Gone are the acres of green grass, cattle and horses. The quiet rural suburb has transformed into a mecca for young families, and it is expected the area will continue to grow in popularity.

It is predicted that between 2016 and 2026, Leppington Precincts will experience an 869% increase in population under working age, a 249% increase in population or retirement age and a 761% increase in population of working age.

Developers are continuing to invest heavily in the region which extends across the Liverpool and Camden local government areas. Salvo Property Group has proposed a new mixed-use development on a 2ha paddock at 313 Bringelly Road, Leppington.

The proposal comprises five buildings from four to six storeys which will include residential apartments, commercial and retail spaces.

A town planning report described the proposal as one that will “foster transformation of the northern part of the Leppington Town Centre.”

“As a future growth area, Leppington is a suburb set to undergo significant change, in character, form, and function,” the development application said. “Currently characterised by a low density residential and rural function, Leppington will transform into a major town centre in Sydney’s south-west…”

Change can be hard, and many will feel a sense of nostalgia as this historic rural town changes into a key hub in South-West Sydney. However, many people are embracing the change, and are eager to secure a piece of land in Leppington to call their own.
