Renewing, Creating and Innovating Sydney
Understanding Sydney's urban design plans and public art is not a simple one and it attracts both criticism and acclaim. The undeniable characteristic of  Sydney is its commitment to renew, create and innovate its design and formation across its varying landscapes and societal needs  
With her recent 10 year anniversary as Lord Mayor, Clover Moore's tenure working with  the dynamic City of Sydney Council  are  fulfilling a commitment to create a diverse and innovative city and with many developments and plans happening as we speak,  let's continue this public dialogue as we become the city of the future

Sydney's current major new development and plans:
