Priorities for the term ahead

We are energised about continuing our work for the City and our community for another term.

Priorities for the term ahead

Our key priorities for the new term include:

Helping our community recover from Covid, reactivating the city and supporting businesses, creatives and vulnerable people get back on their feet.

Continuing our strong action on climate change, reaching Net Zero emissions by 2035 and water-recycling initiatives to drought-proof our city.

Greening the city even further, with a $377 million program to increase our tree canopy and street planting, new parks and upgrades to 60 others.

Completing our safe, separated cycling network, and seeing it extend metro-wide.

Creating more room for people, with increased pedestrianisation along George Street and new "Green Avenues" into the city centre.

Supporting our cultural sector to bounce back post lockouts and lockdown, launching the new Museum of Chinese in Australia, our Monument to the Eora, new affordable creative rehearsal and performance spaces on Bathurst Street and preparing for WorldPride.

Increasing affordable and social housing in the city, particularly through a good outcome at Waterloo.

Ensuring urban renewal areas like Green Square are great places to live with schools, transport and access to parks and playgrounds.

Advocating for additional access to parkland, including at Moore Park Golf Course and Wentworth Park.

Managing the City's finances effectively, with open consultation and accountability, and $1.7 billion in projects delivered over the next ten years.

We are transforming the City of Sydney, and we can’t let our progress be derailed.

We can’t afford to put at risk our achievements and goals for the future by allowing the major parties or the inexperienced to take over Town Hall.
