2030 Vision

Sustainable Sydney 2030 is about changing the way we live, work and play in the city – now and into the future. The blueprint for Sustainable Sydney 2030 grew out of talking to people, asking how things could improve and what we can do to take the city forward.

The consultation phase was extensive – it lasted 18 months. And that was just the start. We then collated your responses, submissions and feedback and presented the findings in a 2030 Vision document that focused on 10 strategic directions.

Adopted by Council in June 2008, the Sustainable Sydney: 2030 Vision document is available below to view and download, in whole and by section.
