Providing adequate infrastructure to support population growth is essential to creating strong communities. One mechanism to better align growth with infrastructure is the growth infrastructure compact which would assess the nature, level and timing of infrastructure required for an area in light of its forecast housing and employment growth, including analysis of growth scenarios. This approach would demonstrate the correlation between growth and infrastructure, such as public transport, schools and open space, to allow for timely integration and more effective expenditure on infrastructure by location. The sequencing, optimising and adaptability of infrastructure are also considered as part of managing infrastructure delivery with growth.
The structure plan brings together elements of A Metropolis of Three Cities - the Greater Sydney Region Plan and Future Transport 2056, demonstrating the integration of land use and transport.
