City of Sydney 2030 by Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney
Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, presents a vision of the City of Sydney in 2030.
Clover Moore MP is the first popularly elected female Lord Mayor of Sydney. An Independent, she was elected in March 2004 for a four-year term. Ms Moore is also an Independent Member of the NSW Parliament, now serving her sixth term in the Legislative Assembly.
The Lord Mayor’s vision for Sydney includes building on its international reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities, while ensuring that it also becomes a leading sustainable city and a preferred location for regional business headquarters.
As Australia’s only global city, and a world-class tourist destination, Sydney plays a key national and international role, as the economic engine-room for the nation, and Australia’s face to the world.
In support of those roles, Ms Moore is committed to working with her colleagues in Australia’s capital cities to ensure that governments give sufficient priority to the future needs of cities, particularly to the need for better urban infrastructure.
The Lord Mayor is responsible for the City of Sydney Local Government Area, which is the fastest growing in NSW. It covers 26 sq km and includes the central business district, which is the commercial, retail and tourism capital of Australia. Ms Moore is conscious of balancing the expectations, needs and interests of all constituencies, maintaining the greater business focus in the CBD along with the pride and ownership all Sydneysiders have in Australia’s premier city.
Ms Moore is Chair of the Sydney Festival Board and of the Central Sydney Planning Committee, and she is Vice-President of the Australia Day Council of New South Wales.
UTS URBANISM AND ARCHITECTURE PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES 2008
The 2008 Urbanism and Architecture Public Lecture series creates meaningful and sustained dialogue about cities and our aspirations for the lives we wish to lead within them. This era is simultaneously marked by a sense of anxiety and extraordinary possibility. Looming environmental crisis, population growth, mass urbanisation and security concerns exist along side the possibilities liberated by new developments in information technology, design research and fabrication.
