Greater Sydney Commission unveils 40-year future plan for Sydney

Author :

The Greater Sydney Commission has released a draft amendment of its 40-year vision for a liveable and sustainable city.

The draft titled ‘Towards Our Greater Sydney 2056’, with its strategy for a metropolis of three cities including; the Western City, The Central City and the Eastern City is set to provide a framework to bring economic and employment benefits.

The aim is to drive national priorities tailored to local needs and includes creating a satellite city in Western Sydney around the new airport to be built at Badgerys Creek, which is being delivered by the Western Sydney City Deal.

Chief Commissioner of the Greater Sydney Commission, Lucy Turnbull the vision is to ensure the essentials of liveability, housing choices, smart jobs, great schools, open spaces and facilities.
The establishment of three great cities in the Greater Sydney Region is emerging as the central and core organising principle of the Commission’s work. This gives a clear picture of how people can realistically achieve the goal of being able to live within 30 minutes of where they work, study and play. This makes life more liveable and way more productive and sustainable for everyone,” she said.
This is also a particular opportunity for design-led planning. This type of planning will be critical to our future urban form. Design-led planning presents a particular opportunity to co-create hard infrastructure and soft infrastructure. This will improve both liveability and quality of life,” said Mrs Turnbull.

The plans is on public exhibition until the end of March 2017. Submissions can be made via the Greater Sydney Commission website here - http://www.greatersydneycommission.nsw.gov.au/towards-our-greater-sydney-2056

The best part of my job as an Assistant General Manager – Production is to create and manage my own conferences from concept to delivery, identify future conference topics as well as giving me a chance to expand my business card collection. Having a bit of a sweet tooth, you will always find me having lollies on my desk or you will catch me browsing on fashion sites during lunch breaks.
