Premier Gladys Berejiklian said following the Government’s adoption of the Greater Sydney Region Plan and five District Plans, the Commission will now be located at the centre of Government.
“We are turning the vision of Greater Sydney as a connected metropolis of three cities into a reality,” Ms Berejiklian said. “Reporting directly to the Premier will ensure the Commission is front and centre of Government decision making.”
The Commission will provide independent advice, strategic oversight and co-ordination across Government agencies, as well as provide assurance that good outcomes are being delivered. This will include a focus on delivering a more liveable Greater Sydney, through the planning of the Western Sydney City Deal and the new Aerotropolis, to be centred around the new Western Sydney Airport.
