Background material

The Greater Sydney Commission has prepared a series of Productivity, Liveability and Sustainability Profiles which support the draft District Plans. These profiles bring together demographic, social, environmental, economic and employment data to tell stories of the productivity, liveability and sustainability in Greater Sydney and its six districts.

A suite of background documents provide information and analysis on a range of topics including local planning policies and strategies, open space, economy and employment. These were developed to inform the preparation of the draft District Plans.
