Sydney is Australia’s gateway to the world – now the City of Sydney has a bold plan to make George Street an attractive, integrated and thriving heart for the city.

Hear our plan to create a pedestrian-friendly and accessible environment for business on George Street, with improved shopping experiences and less noise and clutter.

After the talk, held in conjunction with the Sydney Morning Herald, a panel of industry representatives from transport, tourism, retail, property and small business will discuss the benefits of this essential revitalisation.

So what does it take to revitalise the heart of our global city?

It takes a vision, a plan and courage. Join us in hearing presenters from the City of Sydney outline our plan to revitalise the city centre. They will discuss how this will be achieved and the benefits of the revitalisation for businesses, residents, visitors and tourists.

Sydney is the prime economic driver of the Australian economy. The City of Sydney contributes approximately eight per cent of the Australian GDP and a quarter of the NSW GDP. Both the city and the wider Sydney region are growing and face increasing congestion unless we plan appropriately.

The City of Sydney has developed a plan, Connecting our Cities: Transport Strategies and Actions, that outlines why Sydney needs an integrated transport network. The City is working with the NSW Government to achieve better outcomes, sooner rather than later.

City staff will outline the City’s preferred route for light rail and detail what the system could look like and how it could function.

A better connected and functioning city centre has broad economic and social benefits for businesses, residents and visitors. Hear City staff members discuss economic modelling and research that highlights the effects of transforming the city centre.

Transforming Sydney will also improve the functionality of the night-time economy and cultural vibrancy of an interconnected, safe and dynamic city centre.

Panellists from key industries, including transport, tourism, retail, property and small business, will then discuss the plans, benefits and opportunities of such a vital revitalisation.

Tickets are FREE and ESSENTIAL and available from City’s Angel Place Box Office on 02 8256 2222 or www.cityrecitalhall.com
