Bunnings To Open New Sydney Store

Bunnings is looking to open a new store in the Bringelly Road Business Hub area of south-west Sydney.

The New South Wales Government has awarded planning permission for the new store, which is to be located on a vacant 22-hectare plot of land in Leppington.

The new Bunnings Warehouse and garden centre is expected to open in July 2021.

Recently, the New South Wales Government has made temporary changes to its planning laws to try to boost the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing the planning permission process to be fast-tracked in certain situations.

Rob Stokes, Planning and Public Spaces Minister, said of the new development: 

“From home renovators to professional builders, the new Bunnings Warehouse will be a big boost for the community in Sydney’s south west,”  

“Just over two weeks after announcing we would fast-track the assessment of shovel-ready projects, we’ve approved eight projects that will inject more than $1.9 billion into the State’s economy and create opportunities for more than 16,000 jobs,” 

“The construction and development industries have played a crucial role in keeping the economy moving during COVID-19 – a role they will continue to play as we move out of the crisis.

“That’s why we have made a number of changes to planning legislation this week to provide more certainty and support to businesses, builders and the community.”
