The Berejiklian government will deliver the state's first housing strategy to shape how and where NSW residents will live over the next two decades.
Greater Sydney is expected to reach a population of about 7 million by 2041 as a result of births and the arrival of skilled migrants and international students, government estimates show.
The population boom means the city will need 1 million more homes by 2041 in addition to the existing 1.7 million homes in Greater Sydney as of 2016. Regional NSW will need 240,000 homes.
