The Pulse of Greater Sydney 2020
2020 was a year like no other as the city has dealt with the dramatic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused health and economic shocks and changed the way people live, work, study and play in Greater Sydney. Compounded by the 2019-20 bushfires, prolonged drought and floods, 2020 tested personal and community resilience.
The Pulse of Greater Sydney 2020 discusses how the impacts of the pandemic would shape updates to the Region Plan and District Plans. By understanding the impacts and challenges, we can recognise opportunities to build Greater Sydney’s resilience.
The report uses four overarching performance indicators to measure progress on the implementation of the Region Plan and District Plans. The report highlights a heightened role of local centres and public space, and emphasises the need to make Greater Sydney more equitable and connected.
