Transforming Sydney

22 May 2013

Sydney is Australia's gateway to the world – now the City of Sydney has a bold plan to make George Street an attractive, integrated and thriving heart for the city.

Hear our plan to create a pedestrian-friendly and accessible environment for business on George Street, with improved shopping experiences and less noise and clutter.

After the talk, held in conjunction with the Sydney Morning Herald, a panel of industry representatives from transport, tourism, retail, property and small business will discuss the benefits of this essential revitalisation.
