The Cumberland Council is located in Sydney’s western suburbs, around 25km from the CBD. It was formed in 2016 via a merger of the former councils of Holroyd, Parramatta (part) and Auburn (part). It occupies a strategic position in the Sydney metropolitan area, located adjacent to the City of Parramatta, and has good transport links (road and rail) to the CBD.
Note: The migration flows depicted above are historical and do not represent future or forecast migration flows or subsequent council boundary changes. The arrows represent migration flows to the area as a whole and do not indicate an origin or destination for any specific localities within the area. Overseas flow shows overseas arrivals based on answers to the census question "where did the person usually live 5-years ago" and .id estimates of international out-migration.
There are signficant spatial differences in the supply of residential land that will influence population and household futures. Significant supply has been identified in Merrylands - Holroyd, Auburn (North), Auburn (South), Wentworthville and Lidcombe (North). All these areas have the benefit of a railway station, older housing stock that is ripe for redevelopment, as well as obselete industrial and commercial land that has potential for rezoning. In contrast, there are limited opportunities for further growth in Regents Park, Merrylands West and Pemulwuy - the latter of which has almost completed its rapid development phase. Overall, the population of Cumberland Council is forecast to increase from around 203,190 in 2011, to 296,850 in 2036.
