Region. Big increases in population

Six local government areas in Greater Western Sydney will have their populations increase by more than 50 per cent by 2036. They are Wollondilly, Camden, Liverpool, Campbelltown, Auburn and Baulkham Hills. Official projections obtained by The Daily Telegraph predicted Camden's population would explode by 390 per cent to about 250,000 people in 2036 as a massive development takes shape in the area. Liverpool would have the second biggest boom, almost doubling to 324,000. While many areas of the city, especially the southwest, have long been earmarked as high-growth areas, the size and scope of the boom in some areas is extraordinary. It also explains why the Government has focused its attentions on transport in the southwest rather than the northwest, the paper said.
