Why Collaboration Areas?
Most of the nominated Collaboration Areas include at least one major hospital and a university, which together have the potential to enhance economic outputs and generate a range of quality jobs. But these places also need transport, homes, schools, open space and amenities to attract and retain a talented workforce.
The responsibility for creating great places does not rest with any one organisation. Collaboration Areas offer a new way of working to deliver joined-up responses that support growth and change in our city.
Each Collaboration Area is being driven by a core group of partners representing Local and State government. These partners have signed Collaboration Area Agreements which outline how they will work together to achieve great outcomes for their area.
The Greater Sydney Commission is working with the partners in each Collaboration Area to develop a Place Strategy to ensure the continued growth of these places.
