Let’s have some independent expertise
in city planning

The Committee for North Sydney was appointed on 25 June 2018 and held its inaugural meeting on 29 June 2018.

The members of the Committee for North Sydney — all North Sydneysiders — are leaders in their fields.

The members joined the Committee to facilitate public and expert contributions to the progressive improvement of North Sydney, through public conversations, policy debate, and urban planning and design.

The Committee works with state government and agencies, and with local government and stakeholders, to provide input to public consultations, to provide advice, and to facilitate public involvement in specific issues and projects. One objective is to build a sense of excitement around the potential of one of Australia’s largest CBDs as a place for people.

This section of the website gives access to a selection of announcements, submissions, articles and other documents produced by or for the Committee.
