North-western Sydney is one step closer to a brand new primary school in Marsden Park, following the lodgment of a State Significant Development Application (SSDA).

The project is designed to accommodate up to 1,000 students from year K-6 and provide new permanent, air-conditioned learning spaces, a hall, library, a covered outdoor learning area (COLA) as well as staff and administration facilities.

The school will be located in the Elara estate on Northbourne Drive in Marsden Park and is scheduled for completion in 2021.

Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP, said he was proud to be part of a Government delivering such an important project for the Marsden Park area.

"I am pleased the planning process is well under away and look forward to receiving community feedback. Many local families share my excitement and will be eager to learn more and to share their views."

"The NSW Government is meeting the needs of local communities through significant investments in school infrastructure. We are committed to working with our school communities to deliver the best possible learning facilities for students and staff," Mr Conolly said.

The size and scope of the project will address an anticipated increase in enrolment demand in the North West Priority Growth Area, a region experiencing significant growth and residential development.

"Marsden Park and the rest of North West Sydney is experiencing unprecedented growth. This government has already funded numerous new and upgraded schools in this area alone over the past few years, and we are committed to delivering more.

"We will continue to support the development of the area, with continuous investments into jobs, roads and public transport but also social infrastructure such as schools, parks and community facilities.

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over the next four years to deliver more than 190 new and upgraded schools to support communities across NSW. In addition, a record $1.3 billion is being spent on school maintenance over five years, along with a record $500 million for the sustainable Cooler Classrooms program to provide air conditioning to schools. This is the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW.
