What will Sydney look like in the year 2056? Take a sneak peek…

Exciting new plans for Sydney’s future were unveiled today by the Greater Sydney Commission.

  • Included is the creation of a new satellite city in Western Sydney (around the new airport to be built at Badgerys Creek). "The new city will be based around the existing areas of Camden, Campbelltown, Liverpool and Penrith, which we call our string of pearls” said Chief Commissioner Lucy Turnbull. The plan also included creating 817,000 jobs and 792,000 homes within the next 20 years, and a vision that would see people working within 30 minutes of where they live.

  • The Greater Sydney Commission has created three cities within Sydney in its 40 year plan (above - ABC news)
  • Mrs Turnbull said the city needed to be ‘reimagined’ and notes the commission is seeking feedback on plans which cover issues such as affordable housing, green spaces and urban renewal for each of Sydney’s districts; Central, North, South, South West, West Central and West.
