The Hawkesbury area is the largest Local Government Area in metropolitan Sydney. The City encompasses a total land area of 2,776 square kilometres with a population of over 66,000.
Hawkesbury has an abundance of unique opportunities from the agricultural and equine industry, aviation and education precinct, tourism and rural lifestyles.
The NSW Government's A Metropolis of Three Cities – The Greater Sydney Region Plan identifies Hawkesbury as part of the Western City District.
The Western City District Plan classes Richmond and Windsor as a strategic centre, recognising its expanded role as a hub for retail and commercial services.
Hawkesbury’s competitive advantages include being home to an established high security aviation facility that sits alongside an education precinct. We have a strong agricultural, equine and tourism industry.
As a peri-urban centre it is well placed to be a leader in emerging agri business and build on the strength of tourism. Close enough to major strategic centres, providing access to key supply chains and opportunities, Hawkesbury will leverage off economic-spill over effects.
With a long agricultural history; the area leads production in vegetables, cultivated turf, poultry meat & eggs. There is a growing number of small boutique producers with a focus on changing practices from traditional agriculture to innovative horticultural practices.
Renowned for its rural and hinterland towns and villages, Hawkesbury demonstrates a balance between urbanisation and rural living. Providing a country lifestyle set in picturesque landscapes, with scenic views and vistas, showcasing its natural beauty.
Council is developing masterplans and public domain plans for three town centres of Windsor, South Windsor and Richmond building on the local identity, heritage, the river and cultural assets.
Hawkesbury is a great place to do business.
