This draft District Plan sets out aspirations and proposals for Greater Sydney’s South District, which includes the local government areas of Canterbury-Bankstown, Georges River and Sutherland. It has been developed by the Greater Sydney Commission.
This draft District Plan is on formal public exhibition until the end of March 2017, and will be finalised towards the end of 2017 to allow as many people as possible to provide input.
This draft District Plan proposes a 20-year vision for the South District, which includes the local government areas of Canterbury-Bankstown, Georges River and Sutherland. It has been developed by the Greater Sydney Commission in consultation with State agencies and the community with technical input from councils. The South District draws in some of Greater Sydney’s most famous beaches, Australia’s first National Park, three rail lines and planned investment in better public transport, a diverse mix of multicultural communities, and strong connections to major places of employment such as Sydney City, Sydney Airport, Port Botany and Liverpool. Our work on this draft District Plan builds on the District’s characteristics, while drawing on a robust body of technical material that looks into Greater Sydney’s changing demographics, economy, housing, open spaces and many other characteristics. It also incorporates feedback garnered through our #GreaterSydney engagement.
