Planning our future – listening sessions

Planning our future – listening sessions

While 2050 may seem a long time away, we need to plan now if we are to meet the needs of our ongoing and future communities.

More than a decade ago, we worked with our communities to create a plan for a green, global and connected city.

Sustainable Sydney 2030 underpins our actions on climate change, our support for local businesses, our work on parks, playgrounds and cycleways, and our dedication to supporting the city’s creative and cultural life.

Looking beyond 2030

Now, it’s time for us to plan beyond 2030. Next year, we’ll start an extensive community consultation program for everyone who lives, works and studies in or visits our city. This will help us develop our new community strategic plan – Sustainable Sydney 2050.

To prepare for this we are holding 4 listening sessions in 2018. Join us and let us know what’s on your mind for the future of your local area.
