Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming
Keeping on track
The Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming Committee considers the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. It is primarily a technical review body, required to advise Council on traffic-related matters.
Proposals recommended by the Committee must be formally approved by either the elected Council or authorised Council staff – depending on the nature of the proposal. This can only be done when the advice of the Committee is unanimous. Where the advice of the Committee is not unanimous, Council must separately notify and obtain endorsement from Roads and Maritime Services and the New South Wales Police Service.
The Lord Mayor Councillor Clover Moore
Councillor John Mant
There are 4 formal members of the Committee:
Four formal (voting) representatives, one from each of the following:
- City of Sydney Council (Chairperson)

Informal (non-voting) representatives, where relevant, from each of the following:
