The vision for Greater Sydney as a metropolis of three cities - the Western Parkland City, the Central River City and the Eastern Harbour City and a 30 minute city - means residents in the North District will have quicker and easier access to a wider range of jobs, housing types and activities. The vision will improve the District's lifestyle and environmental assets.

This will be achieved by:

  • Enhancing the role of the Eastern Economic Corridor, including North Sydney as part of the Harbour CBD
  • Supporting jobs growth in strategic centres, including health and education precincts and facilitating innovation
  • Sustaining local centres to provide jobs, services and amenity
  • Providing fast and efficient transport connections to achieve a 30-minute city
  • Retaining and managing industrial and urban services land
  • Creating and renewing great places while protecting heritage and local character and improving places for people
  • Improving walking and safe cycling ways
  • Enhancing foreshore access to Sydney Harbour and the District's waterways
  • Enhancing the quality and improving access to open space, and increasing urban tree canopy
  • Retaining the environmental, social and economic values of the Metropolitan Rural Areas
  • Protecting and enhancing the District's unique natural assets including waterways, coastlines and bushland
