Coast now part of Six Cities Mega Region
The NSW Government has passed legislation that will see the former Greater Sydney Commission become the Greater Cities Commission bringing together the cities of the Lower Hunter and Greater Newcastle, Central Coast, Greater Sydney and Illawarra-Shoalhaven.
The Six-City Megaregion is an initiative of NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet who outlined his Vision for NSW when assuming the premiership in December last year
The Greater Cities Commission will be tasked with developing the six cities vision for metropolitan NSW, following the passage of landmark legislation.
The Commission will develop a six cities strategic plan for discussion in mid-2022, before the finalisation of a new Region Plan by the end of 2023.
