Partnerships and consultations
The Council has a number of guises – leader, advocate, partner and stakeholder – as it represents the City of Sydney’s interests locally and internationally.
We play a collaborative role on the Council of Capital City Lord Mayors, which works with the Federal Government to secure investment and coordinated planning for Australian cities. Most of the nation’s population lives in a capital city.
We’re working closely with the State Government on an agreement (officially called a Memorandum of Understanding) around transport, which focuses on light rail in particular. A further agreement is being developed to guide projects of mutual interest, including the urban renewal site at Green Square.
In 2011, we cemented a long-term partnership with Sydney’s leading universities to apply critical research to strategies, policies and projects that affect the city. Services such as planning, city design and public art will benefit from the research.
Towards 2030, we are working in partnership and in consultation to:
- provide leadership and vision
- develop integrated solutions
- represent the City’s interests on a local, state and national level.
Sydney 2030: green, global and connected. Go to the 2030 strategic directions.
