Department of Planning and Environment (NSW)

We exist to make people's lives better by making NSW a great place to live and work. We help to provide homes and services, build great communities, create jobs and protect the environment.

Greater Sydney Districts

Draft District Plans for each of Greater Sydney's Districts have been developed by the Greater Sydney Commission to ensure well-coordinated, integrated and effective planning for land use, transport and infrastructure.

Planning for the future of regions across NSW

Regional plans are being developed to plan for our future population’s needs for housing, jobs, infrastructure and a healthy environment.

The NSW Government is transforming the system of local government to ensure councils can deliver the quality services and infrastructure that communities deserve. This may impact some current council boundaries. Until this process is finalised, planning for regions and districts will continue to be developed based on existing council boundaries.
