Regional plans

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.

A Metropolis of Three Cities

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.

Greater Newcastle metropolitan planning

The Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan 2036 is the first Metropolitan Plan prepared outside a capital city in Australia.

The Plan facilitates greater collaboration between state and local government and provides the framework for the coordination of land use and infrastructure as Greater Newcastle grows over the next 20 years.

It will help achieve the vision set out in the Hunter Regional Plan 2036 for Greater Newcastle to be the leading regional economy in Australia.

State Significant Precincts

The following State Significant Precincts (SSPs) are areas with state or regional planning significance because of their social, economic or environmental characteristics.
