A new campaign to involve the public in shaping the future of Sydney was launched on Sunday 26 June.

A “Talk Bus” that will travel to community events, local shops and sporting fixtures will spearhead the campaign. The bus will be equipped with tablet computers linked to an interactive website where the community can have their say on what makes their neighbourhoods special.

Planning Minister Rob Stokes, Greater Sydney Commission Chief Executive Sarah Hill and South District Commissioner Morris Iemma announced the official launch of the campaign to involve the public in shaping the future of Sydney, including its housing, greenspace and transport.

The Talk Bus will be going to the Multicultural Eid Festival and Fair at Fairfield Showground on Sunday 10 July and the Panthers v Parramatta NRL game at Pepper Stadium Penrith on Sunday, 17 July 17. Other events are planned as well

“We want to hear directly from the local community to help shape the future of Sydney,” Mr Stokes said.

The Greater Sydney Commission is an independent organisation working across government, industry and community to lead big-picture planning for Sydney. Its role is to ensure a more liveable, productive and sustainable city.
