The Metropolitan Greenspace Program is an annual grants funding program for planning and improvement of regional open space in the greater metropolitan Sydney region.
The program focuses on creating a better balance between the needs of communities and the conservation of natural and cultural resources to deliver a high quality of life for residents across Sydney and the Central Coast.
The program aligns with our Greater Sydney Region Plan – A Metropolis of Three Cities, and the Green Grid strategy. Funding is from the Sydney Region Development Fund, administered by the Office of Strategic Lands.
Since 1989-90 the program has allocated over $45 million to more than 620 projects in partnership with local government. The program provides seed funding and on average every $1 from the Department of Planning is leveraged to gain the value of $4-$10 for a project.
