The Hills Shire is centrally located in Sydney’s north – about 30 kilometres from the Sydney CBD. The Shire is bounded by Hawkesbury Shire in the north, Hornsby Shire in the east, Parramatta City in the south and Blacktown City in the west. The Hills Shire occupies an area of 380 square kilometres stretching from Oatlands in the south to Wisemans Ferry in the north. The Shire is adjacent to the M2 Hills and M7 Motorways and the proposed North West Rail Link and North West growthcentre – a major growth area for the Sydney basin. Two thirds of the Shire is rural land some of which is used for agricultural industries. The Hills Shire is predominantly residential with rural areas in the northern areas of the Shire, agriculture, national parks, as well as semi-rural and rural-residential living. The southern areas of the Shire feature well-established residential and commercial areas as well as new release areas of residential and employment development. There are 19,779 businesses in the Shire. The world class Norwest Business Park and Castle Hill Industrial Estate have an estimated 22,325 employees working in different businesses, including many Australian Corporate Head Offices. In the last 20 years, significant development has occurred in suburbs such as Glenhaven, Kellyville, Beaumont Hills and Rouse Hill. The primary housing market role that the Shire played over this period, was to provide affordable home owning opportunities for families and prospective families from areas to the south and east. This role is expected to continue with additional areas of the Shire being identified for future urban development over the next 20 years. This growth is to be focussed in Kellyville and Box Hill as well as the remaining areas of Rouse Hill, in conjunction with new development areas in neighbouring Blacktown City. Forecast Population in 2013 of 179,117 is expected to increase to reach 225,706 by 2026.
