Draft Parramatta 2050

By 2050, Parramatta will be a city of more than 500,000 people in the geographic heart of Greater Sydney and more people will be living west of Parramatta than to its east. To chart a course for Parramatta’s continued transformation into a global city, the City of Parramatta has prepared draft Parramatta 2050.

Draft Parramatta 2050 is the City of Parramatta’s long term strategic vision which leverages the city’s key assets and outlines the big opportunities for Parramatta now and into the future.
