Guide the vision for the Six Cities

Connected and sustainable communities

Our Six Cities Region includes the cities of the Lower Hunter and Greater Newcastle, Central Coast, Greater Sydney and Illawarra-Shoalhaven. Our vision is to connect these cities in a way that improves opportunity and lifestyle, while maintaining the natural environment. This means more people working within 30 minutes of where they live, increased access to affordable homes, as well as greater educational and training opportunities.

Starting the conversation

The Commission has prepared the Six Cities Region Discussion Paper, sharing our initial thoughts on how we can work with communities and partners to shape the vision for the region.

The discussion paper proposes six region shaping ideas, known as Region Shapers. These ideas align with other government initiatives, providing the basis for whole-of-government integrated land use, transport, and infrastructure planning and investment across the Six Cities Region.

Tell us what you think

We want to hear from people about their hopes and aspirations for the future of the Six Cities Region. This feedback will inform the ongoing work of the Greater Cities Commission and help guide the ongoing development of the Six Cities Region.
