The draft Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney sets out a new plan for the city’s future over the next two decades.

By 2031, Sydney will have around 1.3 million additional people. We need to make sure there are more affordable homes, good job opportunities and easier ways to get around.

This will be assisted by cutting red tape and streamlining planning processes. and includes making subdivision of existing lots easier, increasing the types of housing covered by code-based assessment and having minimum dwelling densities in key locations.
  • Liveable centres Encourage placemaking Reflect local character and culture Network of accessible open spaces Stimulate housing supply with Government led Urban Activation Precincts, Housing NSW renewal programs, delivery managers in the new release areas and ongoing projects by Urbangrowth NSWWork with local government to identify new centres and centres for growth through Subregional Delivery Plans Design guidelines and a new web-resource showcasing good design and examples for the community and industry Create socially inclusive places – with guidelines on delivering community facilities and Growth Infrastructure Plans Deliver accessible and adaptable open space – connected and diverse spaces
  • 625,000 new jobs (increase on 33% since 2010 targets) Sets minimum jobs targets for each subregion Local government jobs targets to be determined by SRDPs Prioritises Sydney CBD, Global Economic Corridor and Parramatta CBD for employment growth Extends the Global Economic Corridor to the north west and to Parramatta Western Sydney Employment Area as a major employment location Links jobs growth with SIS and LTTMP priorities Supports Industry Actions Plans Improves economic flows with regional NSW

  • Six new subregions Each has its own priorities
  • Each subregion has clearly identified metropolitan priorities
  • This strategy has been designed for delivery, and has a far stronger focus on ensuring we will have the right homes, jobs, transport and infrastructure when they are needed. The delivery and implementation plan clearly outlines how and when the actions will be delivered, and who is responsible. The monitoring and evaluation plan also identifies clear measures to help ensure we are achieving the outcomes we need, including a commitment to annual monitoring. Subregional delivery plans will be a critical part of the new planning system, and will be drawn up in partnership with communities and councils. They will help to implement the Metropolitan Strategy at a local level, and will decide where jobs and homes will go, and identify improvements to infrastructure that need to be delivered at the same time. Growth Infrastructure Plans will identify the changing infrastructure needs of local areas and the timing for the delivery of these projects. Annual reporting requirements will mean that progress on the strategy will be assessed and publicly reported each year. This will help to ensure that government agenceis and councils are held accountable for delivering change.
  • There will be a range of opportunities for Sydneysiders to have their say on the strategy. We welcome feedback in a range of ways, from formal submissions through to community events and online conversations. We are particularly interesting in hearing your suggestions for improving the strategy, particularly those with a strong evidence base.
