The Pulse of Greater Sydney 2019

Measuring what matters in the metropolis.

The Greater Sydney Region Plan and five supporting District Plans set out a vision to manage growth and change in Greater Sydney. In preparing the plans, the Commission heard from stakeholders and the community that it is not enough to simply prepare the plans, we must also monitor and report on their implementation.

Monitoring is important as it helps us understand progress towards delivering the plans. Reporting provides transparency and accountability and enables state and local government to measure progress and inform future reviews of the plans.

The Pulse of Greater Sydney was the first comprehensive monitoring and reporting framework for the region. We have identified and gathered the most recent publicly available data as no one government agency, council or organisation can do this alone. Over time we have expanded monitoring and reporting as more data becomes available to help us understand how the region grows and changes.
