Priority 01

Plan for a growing population in a way that improves quality of life for all.


Metropolitan planning | Work from the long-term, integrated plan for Greater Metropolitan Sydney.

Density done well | Create denser communities with more amenities and connectivity, focusing growth around Sydney’s growing mass transport network.

Housing | Significantly increase the amount of social and affordable housing in Sydney; and add enough supply at all price levels to keep up with the growing population.

Healthy cities | Make Sydney more walkable and bikeable, and reduce health inequalities, particularly in Western Sydney.

Open up public spaces | Improve the amount of vibrant and attractive public streets, squares and laneways.

Taskforces supporting these priorities:

• Planning Taskforce
• Western Cities Taskforce

Smart Cities Taskforce

Ensuring a global, liveable connected Sydney

Technology is changing the way we live, communicate
and work. We now have the ability to access data and
integrate technology to improve the liveability,
workability and sustainability of Sydney. Taskforce
members represent our growing tech sector,
Government agencies, global organisations and
knowledge institutions. Members will focus on
coordinating policy around the development of
Sydney as a smart city and enabling technology
integration across business and government as a way
to secure our long term economic and social success.
