Premier Minns Unveils Sydney's Growth Blueprint: A Fairer Future for All

Premier Chris Minns has heralded a new era of equitable development for Sydney, marking a significant shift towards rebalancing the city's expansion. After months of apprehension among local councils regarding impending building targets, the NSW Labor government has finally outlined its vision for Sydney's growth.

Breaking away from the status quo, Minns's plan signals a departure from the disproportionate burden borne by the western suburbs. Instead, it calls for a more distributed approach, with emphasis on expanding not only the west but also the east and north.

Addressing long-standing grievances, Minns's administration has raised housing targets across the board. Notably, the historically resistant Ku-ring-gai Council now faces a substantial increase in its five-year housing target, soaring from 3000 to 7600. Similarly, Woollahra's target has seen a remarkable quadrupling from 500 to 1900. Meanwhile, North Sydney and the Northern Beaches have witnessed their targets double to 5900 each.

With these measures, Minns aims to foster inclusive growth, ensuring that all areas of Sydney contribute proportionately to its development. This transformative blueprint reflects Minns's commitment to tackling the city's challenges head-on, paving the way for a more balanced and sustainable future.
