Development in Liverpool surges

May 30, 2018 by  

Statistics indicate that there has been considerable development within Liverpool recently.

Growth in Sydney is not distributed evenly around the city, and it appears that development within Liverpool has been especially rapid. Demand for print shops can increase in areas which experience a lot of growth.

One of the few issues with expansion is that it can take a while for the provision of infrastructure to catch up with the needs of local people. Professor Roberta Ryan examines public policy in the University of Technology Sydney, and told the Sydney Morning Herald:

“Communities expect governments to plan better. The planning that does exist is fragmented across state jurisdictions and subject to the short-term capriciousness of the three- to four-year political cycle.”

Almost 17,000 residences were built in Liverpool and Canterbury-Bankstown over a period of five years. Council areas covering the northern shore district did not witness any comparable development.

Professor Ryan suggested that several communities might benefit if there was a national plan. This could help the country to address any pressures related to settlement patterns. She called for additional investment in the transport infrastructure.

According to the forecasts, Liverpool and Canterbury-Bankstown should get even more housing soon. However, it is thought that new development will be more intense elsewhere. The suburb of Parramatta is forecast to expand by over 20,000 homes in the coming years.
