Eastern City District Plan

Future of the Eastern City District

The vision for Greater Sydney as a metropolis of three cities – the Western Parkland City, the Central River City and the Eastern Harbour City and a 30 minute city – will see the Eastern City District become more innovative and globally competitive, carving out a greater portion of knowledge-intensive jobs from the Asia Pacific Region. The vision will improve the District’s lifestyle and environmental assets.

This will be achieved by:

  • Strengthening the international competitiveness of the Harbour CBD, supported by the Innovation Corridor, health and education precincts and the District’s strategic centres
  • Boosting innovation and creative industries alongside knowledge-intensive jobs growth
  • Stimulating the night-time economy within a responsive regulatory environment
  • Protecting international trade and freight routes
  • Retaining industrial and urban services land
  • Nurturing quality lifestyles through well-designed housing in neighbourhoods close to transport and other infrastructure
  • Sustaining communities through vibrant public places, walking and cycling, and cultural, artistic and tourism assets
  • Aligning growth with infrastructure, including transport, social and green infrastructure, and delivering sustainable, smart and adaptable solutions
  • Being innovative in providing recreational and open space areas, and increasing urban tree canopy
  • Transitioning to a low-carbon, high-efficiency District through precinct-scale initiatives
  • Building effective responses to climate change and natural and urban hazards.
