Be in no doubt: the future of Sydney will be determined by what happens in the west and we shape that by what we do today. This is a big story. A story not just of what the west is asking for but what it’s offering.
It is about how in overcoming the challenge of what had been emerging as ‘‘the two Sydneys’’ — one with the top value jobs and the other with the population growth. We need to create one city that’s more balanced but also even more successful.
And one that has not just a second CBD in Parramatta but a new centre of Sydney at the heart of a network of high amenity, high connectivity centres of livability, commerce and education all connected to each other, to the Sydney CBD and of course that key game-changer the airport.
