Consultation has concluded


CBCity is preparing a Resilience Strategy to set out a vision for creating a resilient community that is connected and prepared for emergencies and change.

Resilient cities have the ability to prepare for, recover and adapt to shocks and stressors. Chronic stressors are ongoing and felt on a day-to-day basis. Examples include rising inequality, effects of climate change, lack of social cohesion and inadequate public transport. Acute shocks are sudden, sharp events that threaten a city such as heatwaves, floods, disease outbreaks and cyber-attacks.

The Resilience Strategy will enable CBCity to be a more prepared, responsive, connected and sustainable city that can adapt and thrive into the future.

The strategy will align with the directions in Resilient Sydney 2018, which was developed in collaboration with the NSW State Government, local councils, businesses and the community within the Metropolitan Sydney area. CBCity is a Resilient Sydney Ambassador, and through the development of our Resilience Strategy is committed to helping to strengthen the resilience of Greater Sydney.

Council will undertake community and stakeholder consultation over the coming months to inform the development of the strategy. The consultation process will help to identify our strengths, vulnerabilities and priorities for action.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, face-to-face engagement is on hold between 24 June - 30 July 2021.
