A more liveable Sydney

What will it take to drive the future prosperity of Sydney - one that is positioned to flourish over the next decade? What role will you play in shaping the future of our city? Imagine a more accessible and liveable Sydney.

Exceptional quality of life and liveability are the pinnacle and privilege of modern day living. ImagineSydney - Live, unpacks liveability in Sydney to focus on a three cities concept - the idea that developing three connected economic centres could make a 30-minute city a reality.

If we get it right, the economic and social benefits of a 30-minute Sydney are significant. The gains from agglomeration, reduced travel time, and infrastructure investments could be in the order of $10 billion per year.

We recognise that getting it right is a big challenge for the community more broadly and explore what government, the private sector and individuals can do to achieve a 30-minute city.

It's time to take the next step in making Sydney a more liveable place.
