Development in 2030:

Planning excellence and strategic urban renewal

Development in 2030

The City of Sydney approves all development in our Council area, in line with our planning requirements and NSW laws.

Development includes the construction of new buildings as well as changes or additions to existing ones. It also takes in the subdivision and rezoning of land.

While most of the built city that is here now will remain, by 2030 some parts of the City will undergo significant change and renewal. The Central Sydney Planning Committee oversees developments over $50 million. Over the past 23 years it has determined over 2190 development applications worth $25 billion.

As we move towards 2030, our focus when it comes to development is on architectural and planning excellence and strategic urban development sites.

We are also working on major, City-wide projects including affordable housing and a network of green infrastructure.
