What are District Plans?

The Greater Sydney Commission’s five District Plans are a guide for implementing A Metropolis of Three Cities - the Greater Sydney Region Plan at a District level.

These 20-year plans are a bridge between regional and local planning. They inform local environmental plans, community strategic plans and the assessment of planning proposals. The District Plans also help councils to plan and deliver for growth and change, and to align their local planning strategies to place-based outcomes.

The Commission’s District Plans were finalised in March 2018 after extensive stakeholder and community consultation, including two public exhibition periods.
