South District Plan

Future of the South 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 – means residents in the South District will have quicker and easier access to a wider range of jobs, housing types and activities. The vision will improve the District’s lifestyle and environmental assets. 

The South District is part of the Eastern Harbour City. Its vision will be achieved by:

  • Supporting the growth of the ANSTO innovation precinct, health and education precincts, Bankstown Airport-Milperra industrial area and the District’s strategic centres
  • Retaining industrial and urban services land and freight routes
  • Optimising on the District’s locational advantage of being close to Sydney Airport, Port Botany, the Illawarra and Port Kembla
  • Building on the District’s connections to Parramatta, and in the longer term to Liverpool and Western Sydney Airport
  • Sustaining vibrant public places, walking and cycling, and cultural, artistic and tourism assets
  • Matching growth and infrastructure, including social infrastructure
  • Protecting and enhancing natural assets including waterways and beaches, bushland and scenic and cultural landscapes
  • Providing innovation in providing recreational and open spaces, and increased urban tree canopy
  • Transitioning to a low-carbon, high efficiency District through precinct-scale initiatives
