Sydney is a vibrant, cosmopolitan, and accessible city with a diverse population, a rich history, world famous tourist attractions and an exciting calendar of international and local events.
The City of Sydney is the local government authority responsible for the central business district (CBD) and more than 30 suburbs or parts of suburbs within our boundaries.
In 2007, the City of Sydney asked residents and businesses what they wanted to see happen over the next 20 years and beyond. The result is a collective vision for Sydney’s sustainable development, called Sustainable Sydney 2030, which will make Sydney a green, global and connected city.
The city is fast becoming a leading environmental performer and our sustainability plan guides what we do. Sustainable development is not just about the physical environment, but about fostering Sydney’s economy, society and culture as well.
