The scale of future growth

11 May 2015

UrbanGrowth NSW is using a range of population growth scenarios to inform studies and assessments for the Central to Eveleigh Urban Transformation and Transport Program. These are indicative forecasts of 29,000 to 56,000 new residents across the wider 500 hectare study area (including the corridor) and 15,000 to 26,000 new residents specifically in the 80 hectare corridor. The scenarios for additional workers are 7,000 to 13,000 in the corridor and 8,000 to 14,000 in the wider study area.

These scenarios are not development targets. They inform when infrastructure capacity needs addressing, proposed future development will then be aligned with infrastructure planning.

This would be in addition to the current population is 51,757 (2011) and 78,376 (2011) workers across the study area. Within this, there are approximately 200 residents currently in the corridor area.

These are indicative numbers to test infrastructure impacts in our strategic planning. We are using these scenarios to understand how a range of possible development outcomes could shape demand for additional electricity, water and sewerage networks as well as important community facilities such as childcare, schools and open space.
