New South Wales has been busy on the logistics facilities front lately and the momentum continues with state government approval of a new warehouse and distribution hub in Kemps Creek.

Some $242 million in economic investment will pour in for the new Kemps Creek Warehouse, Logistics and Industrial Facilities Hub.

This approval will allow for the construction of eight buildings as well as earthworks to be carried out and infrastructure built across the entire hub.

The development of the rest of the hub will be subject to future development applications.

NSW planning minister Rob Stokes says the project will deliver investment and new opportunities for Western Sydney to combat the economic impacts of Covid-19.

"This development will create 700 construction jobs and 950 operational jobs while injecting $242 million into the Western Sydney economy," Stokes says.

"The approval means we can get shovels in the ground faster. This government is committed to fast-tracking planning assessments to help stimulate the economy during the pandemic."

The development is a joint venture between Frasers Property Partners and Altis Bulky Retail, and is said to include major global retailers, e-commerce providers, health and pharmaceutical industries, warehousing and logistics operators, light manufacturing and data centres.

Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies believes the development will benefit from its prime location close to the Western Sydney Airport.

"Western Sydney is establishing itself as a strong industrial and employment growth area," Davies says.

"The construction of a new warehouse and logistics hub is going to substantially add to this growing reputation and attract more investment that will benefit our western Sydney community.

"Once fully complete, the entire hub could support up to 2,000 operational jobs."

Construction is expected to begin this year and will be undertaken in stages, with the first building to be completed within 12 months.

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres says the investment is a vote of confidence in the future Aerotropolis.

"Creating jobs and boosting business is a priority for the NSW Government and this Hub means work for hundreds of people, during both construction and when the warehouse becomes operational," Ayres adds.
