Event description

Description

The Sydney Business Chamber contributed to the public debate on the Western Sydney Airport by preparing two major research reports, hosting a conference with well-renowned international and local speakers, and becoming a founding member of the Western Sydney Airport Alliance. The Federal Government announced its decision to develop an airport at the Badgerys Creek site in 2014. The Sydney Business Chamber remains heavily engaged on this issue to ensure the best outcome for Western Sydney businesses and residents.

While its population continues to grow and diversify, the Western Sydney region is facing a dramatic jobs deficit. Estimates have put this shortfall to reach 320,000 by 2036. This report identifies that by 2050, an airport at Badgerys Creek could support up to 33 million passenger movements and help create more than 30,000 additional jobs for the region.

Utilising the experience of best practice international airport development, this report identifies the steps necessary to ensure the economic benefit of a Western Sydney Airport is maximised, including through the development of a Western Sydney Airport city.

Guest Speakers

David Borger, Sydney Business Chamber of Commerce, Western Sydney Director.

Bradley Speers, CBRE, Head of Research

Speaker Biography - David Borger

Prior to entering public life David worked as an Urban Planner and adviser to the Minister for Planning.

At 30 years of age, he became the youngest person to hold the office of Lord Mayor of Parramatta where he served for three terms. During this time he provided leadership in progressing the Civic Place development, and promoting urban renewal in the city centre through the adoption of new planning controls with a strong urban design focus. The city commenced a number of new civic projects to increase investment and employment while also transforming the city’s parks, public spaces and walkways. He chaired the Mayors’ Forum on City Design at the University of Sydney and the Central Parramatta Planning Panel.

In 2007 Borger was elected to represent the Granville electorate in the NSW Parliament. He served as Minister for Western Sydney and Minister for Roads as well as Assistant Minister for Transport in the NSW Government.

As Housing Minister he oversaw the construction of approximately 9,000 new social housing dwellings - including 6,300 through the Nation Building Economic Stimulus Plan.

During this time he championed major reforms to expand the community housing sector in NSW by transferring the title of $2 billion worth of public housing to highly performing community housing associations. This reform allowed community housing to develop a balance sheet, and to trade and develop existing housing assets.
