Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney: A Plan for Growing Sydney

A plan for a growing Sydney

The NSW Government has prepared a new Metropolitan Strategy for Sydney that sets out a new plan for the city’s future over the next two decades called A Plan for a Growing Sydney.

By 2031 Sydney will have around 1.3 million additional people. It is important to make sure there are more affordable homes, good job opportunities and easier ways to get around. This is a plan for future growth in Sydney.

The NSW Government’s vision for Sydney is: a strong global city, a great place to live.
To achieve this vision, the Government has set down goals that Sydney will be:

  •  a competitive economy with world-class services and transport;
  • a city of housing choice with homes that meet our needs and lifestyles;
  • a great place to live with communities that are strong, healthy and well connected; and
  • a sustainable and resilient city that protects the natural environment and has a balanced approach to the use of land and resources.
