Our latest Growth Servicing Plan –– provides a high-level view of where we expect Greater Sydney’s water-related infrastructure to be available over the next 5 to 15 years. It includes maps showing infrastructure plans across major greenfield and infill areas.
If you’re planning a large-scale land rezoning, new development or redevelopment project, call us onfor advice. Ask for the City, Growth & Development team.
Our long-term planning supports the NSW Government’s vision of 3 sustainable, productive and liveable cities – the Western Parkland City, the Central River City and the Eastern Harbour City – and incorporates the coastline cities in the Illawarra region.
By 2056, we’ll be providing water services to about 8 million customers. We see our role going beyond our current high-quality water and wastewater services, with water playing a lead role in cooling and greening the city.
Theaims to provide you with options to establish the planning and infrastructure you need to support your development program. Each year, we update it with new insights and potential timing of new infrastructure. Your feedback has helped us to shape the plan, which outlines:
We look forward to working with developers and local communities to get the right services delivered at the right time, and create liveable, thriving and productive communities.
Broadly, there are 2 ways that new water infrastructure for growth areas in Greater Sydney can be funded: by Sydney Water or by developers.
We plan delivery of services around the NSW Government’s land release program. We must demonstrate that any decisions we make on funding infrastructure comply with the requirements set by the.
Before we fund infrastructure, we must show that there’s demand for that infrastructure in the community, with a high certainty of delivery and timing. Developments must be ready to connect to our infrastructure, soon after it’s constructed for it to be an efficient and economical investment. Thehas more details on how we decide when to progress planned infrastructure.
A developer can opt to independently fund infrastructure to accelerate planning and construction and can apply to the NSW Government to bring forward the release of precincts for development. If the government approves your proposal, we’ll work with you to establish a commercial agreement. This will outline financial arrangements and determine the best way to plan and deliver services.
Thelays out options on how you may accelerate your development. Plus, our policy provides more information about developer-funded infrastructure and conditions for reimbursement.
