Supporting recovery in the Sydney city centre

We’re working with the NSW Government to boost the city centre economy, support businesses and create jobs across the vital summer period and into 2021.

A joint plan to revitalise the city centre

 Plan includes:

  • an outdoor summer cultural experience in a city centre location
  • funding live music, performance and art in venues, bars, restaurants and outdoors through a grants program
  • funding public art in laneways across central Sydney
  • cutting red tape and waiving footway dining fees to allow more alfresco dining
  • providing space to relax outdoors with temporary seating
  • keeping Sydney’s cultural organisations open into the evenings
  • promoting the city as a domestic destination to Sydneysiders alongside Destination NSW.
