In the past decade, complex accommodation issues have challenged our liveability indicators.
Why we’re doing this
Sydney is widely recognised as one of the world’s most liveable cities. It’s renowned for its cultural diversity and economic competitiveness, as well as the high quality of life it offers its residents.
However, in the past decade, complex housing issues have challenged our liveability indicators. Our local areas include some of the most socio-economically diverse communities in NSW.
Housing growth continues in the city, with an additional 56,000 dwellings to be built by 2036. Growth will bring challenges and we need to begin planning today for the city we want tomorrow.
How we can achieve this
Council adopted the local housing strategy in February 2020. We are now working with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, which is responsible for approving all housing strategies across NSW.
Our land-use strategies can affect the entire local area or be specific to key sites or precincts.
