City of Sydney Council
Review of the Late Night Trading Premises in the City of Sydney consultation
Lock out laws, increasing density, impact of noise on neighbours, and Sydney’s declining night life have been vexing issues over the past decade. Global cities like Sydney need a thriving, diverse and safe nightlife for everyone and the night-time economy can bring economic, social and cultural benefits.
In early 2018, Cred led a team of consultants on engagement with Sydneysiders about their views on where and when late-night trading should happen in the City of Sydney local government area. We heard from over 10,000 people, including residents, visitors, industry and other stakeholders – and the results indicated a keen desire for hours and areas to increase and expand and for new precincts to be created.
