Middleton Grange is a suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Middleton Grange is located 40 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Liverpool and is part of the Greater Western Sydney region. (wikipedia)
The suburb was officially created in 2005. Middleton Grange was considered by Liverpool City Council for rezoning to residential lots in the early 1990s. This progressed with lobbying by the land owners and other interested parties until Liverpool City Council started moving forward in 1999. LandPro Corporation, together with land owners continued to push the issue, attending numerous Council meetings until rezoning was achieved in 2005. Of course there were many delays such as land acquisition by Council for drainage and other services, including sewer upgrading works (completed by Sydney Water).
Rene discovered the story of Rowden ‘Ron’ Middleton who was on the 29th mission in Turin, Italy during World War II when his plane was shot. With his crew injured he managed to fly the crippled plane back to England but could not land so he forced his crew out in parachutes to save them and flew out to sea where his plane crashed and died. He became the first fighter pilot to receive the Victoria Cross for bravery during World War ll. Rene also was able to name the streets names also to promote the areas heritage with Lockheed Ave, Cessna St and Qantas Boulevard just a few of the aptly-named streets.
Rene Licata was able to return with new investors in 2014 to realise his dream and his vision for the new suburb.
