Blue Mountains City

Dwellings and development map

Between 2016 and 2036, Katoomba - Medlow Bath is forecast for the greatest increase in development of new dwellings in Blue Mountains City.

Visualising the geographic pattern of growth in dwelling stock across Blue Mountains City is a good starting point for assessing the scale and type of change each part of the area is undergoing. Some areas will be experiencing significant growth in new dwellings, either through greenfield development or densification and renewal.

However it would be a mistake to assume that areas not experiencing significant housing development are not undergoing change. Other processes will be at work such as the aging-in-place of the existing population and changing household structures. The age structure and household type maps will uncover these population shifts.
