We develop regional plans across NSW to help support our future community needs. These include plans for homes, jobs, community infrastructure and a healthy environment.
Planning for local communities provides opportunities for new homes, jobs, community services and open spaces.
The following State Significant Precincts (SSPs) are areas with state or regional planning significance because of their social, economic or environmental characteristics.
To meet the needs of a growing and changing population, 'A Metropolis of Three Cities – the Greater Sydney Region Plan' vision seeks to transform Greater Sydney into a metropolis of three cities, with great open space places, greater housing choice, shorter commutes and world class job opportunities.
The Department is collaborating with the five Greater Newcastle councils (Cessnock, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Newcastle and Port Stephens), key industry groups, and the community to undertake metropolitan planning for Greater Newcastle.
