An artist impression of what a business park may look like from Blaxland HillA proposal for a 60-hectare business park along Narellan Road, Campbelltown, may be in its infancy but early indications are positive.
An application for stage one of the business park — which includes only land on the Maryfields site owned by the Franciscan Friars — has received initial support from Campbelltown Council and will now proceed to public exhibition.
No application has been received for any other stages of the precinct — earmarked to be located on University of Western Sydney, TAFE and council owned land — although Wayne Camenzuli, managing director of Capital Syndications, the applicant, said discussions with landowners had been positive.
Capital Syndications is acting on behalf of the Franciscan Friars.
“We spoke to UWS and TAFE and shared with them what we were doing,” Mr Camenzuli said.
“We agreed we could achieve a whole lot more under a holistic vision. Individually we have fractured pieces, but together we can make it a great place.”
Mr Camenzuli said the location on Narellan Road was ideal for a business park.
“I think the big thing to be said about Campbelltown is that it’s a very misunderstood city.
“It offers so much promise.
“It’s not just a pretty place scenically, but it is also supported by transport infrastructure.
“It also has a whole lot of population growth and all that goes well for a corporate-style business park.”

A business park along Narellan Road combined with existing medical facilities could prove a tasty carrot for health-related industries, Campbelltown mayor Paul Lake said.
The Advertiser last week revealed the proposal for the first stage of a business park had been supported by Campbelltown Council.
The 60-hectare precinct — which will go on public exhibition — would be located on the Maryfields site, to the south surrounding the current University of Western Sydney and TAFE campuses and also include land near Farrow Road.
Stage one — the Nexus Business Park — only includes land on the Maryfields site, although the council was hopeful the entire precinct would come to fruition.
“One of the hopes is to attract educational, medical and health [industries] and any businesses that relate to those industries,” Cr Lake said.
“Campbelltown will have a regional hospital as we go forward; we just signed off on the [$16 million UWS] medical school [to be built next to Campbelltown Hospital], and we also have the school of medicine at the university.”
Cr Lake said Macarthur could be the major medical precinct between Sydney and Canberra.
“We could have a new children’s hospital that services the south-west region down to Canberra,” he said.
