According to the Draft Greater Sydney Region Plan: 8 Million People will call Sydney home by 2056. The Plan will provide 725,000 new dwellings and generate an extra 817,000 jobs.

Greater Sydney will become 3 connected cities over the next 40 years, linked by new public transport, giving more communities access to job opportunities, new homes and services within 30 minutes.
Minister for Planning and Housing Anthony Roberts, and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance, this week launched the Greater Sydney Commission’ draft Regional Plan and Transport for NSW’s Future Transport strategy for metropolitan Sydney for public comment.
The draft Plan, prepared by the Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) was launched for public comment together with Transport for NSW’s Future Transport 2056.
Chief Commissioner Lucy Turnbull AO said the plans were the first long-term land use and transport strategies to be developed both collaboratively and concurrently.
“The three cities vision is also at the heart of Future Transport 2056 and I’m delighted to see the close collaboration between our agencies bring this vision to life,” Ms Turnbull said.
