Ray Martin AM

The Board is delighted to announce that Ray Martin, a North Sydney resident for three decades and a passionate believer in high quality city planning, design and government, has accepted our invitation to chair the Committee for North Sydney.

At his first meeting with the Committee, Ray said that the construction of the metro station in Miller Street offers a window of opportunity to create a great central civic place, that can immediately improve the city centre and benefit the North Sydney community.

Successful roundtable on big planning issues

Members of the Committee for North Sydney spent the afternoon of Saturday 7 December focusing intently on two questions: What makes North Sydney North Sydney? and What are the attributes of a good city centre?

What emerged from the session were some real insights into the key issues, some great ideas, and some radical but practical proposals.

A report of the roundtable was discussed — and acted on — at the December meeting of the Committee for North Sydney. Watch for announcements in the new year.
