Fascinating... the domain <greater.sydney> is hosted by Amazon Technologies who own -  Lucy seems to be outsourcing & offshoring the website in the best traditions of her kind.  What will Sydney, Nova Scotia ever do?

The plan for Sydney sounds exactly like something I saw advertised in a tourism magazine back when the third runway at Sydney KSA was being pushed by a tourism body and Bob Hawke ("I don't care how many people were at the Opera House, the third runway is going ahead").  I believe Hawke has form here as he was also a leading lobbyist for an American company promoting an Australian dump for global nuclear waste.  What a man.

Anyhow, the tourism lobby of the time saw a planning zone around the central city and eastern suburbs pushing out to some of the leafy northern suburbs - that would be the tourist theme park.  The honest workers would be located towards Parramatta, and the "deplorables" down around Campbelltown.
