Public consultation is now open

The draft Greater Sydney Water Strategy is open for public consultation until 8 November 2021.

All submissions will be reviewed by the department and all feedback will be considered. We look forward to hearing your views.

We will be holding an online community information session to provide the community with an overview of the strategy, its priorities, timelines for the final strategy and how to make a submission. The department will also engage with key stakeholders including local government and First Nations and Aboriginal stakeholders in the Greater Sydney area to seek their views and feedback on the draft strategy.

See below for details of the online community information session and how to register.

Next steps

Once all feedback has been received from the public consultation, we will develop the final Greater Sydney Water Strategy, taking on board your views and ideas. We will then:

  • publish the submissions and a ‘what we heard’ report summarising the feedback we received
  • develop and publish the final Greater Sydney Water Strategy, which will include an implementation plan with timelines, and roles and responsibilities for implementing the actions in the strategy.

If you have any questions about the Greater Sydney Water Strategy, you can email the project team via or call 1300 081 047.
