I first read about this news "North to feel the aqueeze" on the free "MX News" this afternoon on the train. The article says "An extra 30,000 dwellings will be squeezed into Sydney's already densely populated inner northern suburbs by the year 2031 to cater for an expected population boom".
Quickly did a search and found this "draft Inner North Subregional Strategy" on exhibition for public comment from NSW government web site: "When finalised, the Subregional Strategy will guide land-use planning until 2031 in the Hunters Hill, Lane Cove, Mosman, North Sydney, Ryde and Willoughby local government areas." Click on here to read the full report and other information from NSW government web site.
Although Epping is not part of it, our close neighbouring suburb Eastwood belongs to Ryde council and was included. I am most interested in the housing part, some information shown below:
