Metropolitan Strategy Review: Sydney over the next 20 years. NCOSS notes that the 2005 Strategy was the subject of an extensive review in 2010. We believe that the key directions of the resulting Metropolitan Plan enjoyed strong support from key interest groups and are not in need of fundamental review. NCOSS is, however, strongly supportive of the current Government's desire to work towards a greater integration of long term plans for land use planning, infrastructure and transport within the overall framework of NSW 2021.
