A public lecture will be held at the University of Sydney on 30 November to discuss the draft Central Sydney Planning Strategy 2012-2036. The event is being organised jointly by the Henry Halloran Trust and the City of Sydney.

Considered the road map for Sydney’s developmental future over the next 20 years, the comprehensive planning strategy outlines changes in building heights, density, environmental and sustainability initiatives, and city design. The discussion on the draft planning strategy will focus on how Sydney’s development will be managed and also provide a platform for Sydneysiders to have their say as the city prepares to accommodate a population of 6.4 million by 2031.

To be held on Wednesday 30 November, the sold-out public lecture will have the City of Sydney’s Director of City Planning, Development and Transport Graham Jahn AM explaining the new strategy to the audience. Two sustainable urban design and planning experts will also give their feedback on the plan: University of Sydney’s Dr Adrienne Keane, Director of the Master of Urbanism program, with an interest in statutory land use and the environmental consequences of urban planning policy; and Dejan Simovic, Senior Design Manager at Greenland Group - a pioneer in China and global leader in real estate development for sustainable cities.
