Productivity, liveability and sustainability profiles of Greater Sydney are online and may help you to make a formal submission to the draft District Plans and Towards our Greater Sydney 2056.

The maps, graphs, data and key points in the profiles inform the way we plan the districts and have supported the information in the productivity, liveability and sustainability sections of the draft District Plans.

  • Greater Sydney’s Productivity Profile brings together a series of maps and graphs that tell the story of the productivity in Greater Sydney. It describes Greater Sydney’s economy in terms of jobs growth, jobs type and locations, economic output, travel modes to access jobs.
  • The Liveability Profiles (one for each district) describe the characteristics of the district by the population’s age, gender, country of birth, family type, education levels, household incomes, internet access and how we expect these to change over time.

A Liveability Profile for each district, rather than one for Greater Sydney, was produced because of the broad range of characteristics and needs of people across the Greater Sydney region.

  • Greater Sydney’s Sustainability Profile provides supporting information on the environment, climate and natural (biophysical) systems of Greater Sydney. It covers landscape, environmental characteristics of places, energy, waste, transport emissions, water consumption, residential density, access to open space and resilience of communities to natural hazards.

The information in the Productivity, Liveability and Sustainability profiles, which supported the draft District Plans, are publicly available and may help inform submissions for the draft District Plans and Towards our Greater Sydney 2056.

Submissions close on 31 March 2017.
