District Dialogues

What is a District Dialogue?

Facilitated workshops will be held in each district to initiate discussions about the priorities and actions in the draft District Plans and give an overview of Towards our Greater Sydney 2056.

The aim of the district dialogues is to create a forum where a broad range of community members can provide feedback on the priorities in their district through small group discussion and deliberation.

The workshops will gather the feedback of participants, which will be compiled and sent as a submission to the Greater Sydney Commission.
