Get involved


The Greater Sydney Commission is listening and learning from people with a vast range of expertise and interests.

We have connected with more than 7,500 individuals and groups representing local councils, state government agencies, peak bodies, community interests and the general public.

This collaboration has informed our preparation of draft District Plans, which are now on public exhibition until the end of March 2017.

Our reach is broad, and our work will affect many people. Our ambition is to create a strong global city that is a great place to live. By this we mean Greater Sydney becomes more liveable, productive and environmentally sustainable.

We will share the reasons behind our plans and priorities, and monitor our progress. We will monitor our work via our dashboard to keep us accountable. 

Our Engagement Strategy

Our Engagement Strategy outlines how the Commission engages with government, business and the community as strategic plans - including District Plans and the review of the Greater Sydney Region Plan, A Plan for Growing Sydney - and how you can get involved. It will raise people’s awareness of the work to plan for long-term growth and encourage people to contribute to the process.
