'A City for Walking' strategy and action plan – continuing the vision

Our framework for becoming a more walkable city over the next 10 years.


Our strategy creates a framework to achieve the walking outcomes aligned with Sustainable Sydney 2030–2050 Continuing the Vision. The action plan sets out 12 actions we’ll carry out over the next 10 years to improve walking.

Our communities told us walking is important to them. When asked for words to describe Sydney in the future, safe, sustainable, green and walkable consistently came up as the most popular choices among people.

Our strategy and action plan considers the whole walking experience – from safe walking connections to needs such as comfort and enjoyment for people.

The strategy positions our city to be a leader in the walking space. Its 12 actions include advocacy and working with partners, and City of Sydney-led actions such as more pedestrian crossings and public domain improvements.
