Growth Infrastructure Compacts

Greater Sydney is a successful and growing city, but, to become more liveable, sustainable and productive, it will need additional infrastructure and services in the right places and at the right time.

6 million people are predicted by 2036, that means providing more roads, public transport, services and schools where we live and work.

To achieve this, a better, more collaborative way of doing things is required, so the Greater Sydney Commission has designed Growth Infrastructure Compacts which will bring government, business and the community together to match housing and jobs growth with timely and cost effective delivery of infrastructure.

A Growth Infrastructure Compact starts by identifying where significant residential and employment growth could occur. Then, government agencies, the community and industry work together to develop a shared vision for those areas.

Scenarios are then developed looking at what new and enhanced local and regional infrastructure will be needed to support the growth. What will it cost? How will it be funded and when can it be delivered?
