North Sydney Smart City Strategy

Consultation has concluded

The smart city concept has been growing across the world for the past fifteen years. Smart cities are usually characterised by three key elements: new technology, data and innovation.

The North Sydney Smart City Strategy and Action Plan were developed in two stages:

  • Stage 1 - preliminary feedback undertaken from December 2018 to February 2019; and
  • Stage 2 - preparation of the Draft Strategy and Action Plan, and public exhibition from 25 July 2019 to 21 August 2019.

Council considered the post exhibition report at its meeting held 23 September 2019 and resolved to adopt the North Sydney Smart City Strategy and Action Plan.

The Strategy sets out the vision, principles and priorities which will guide the local government area’s digital transformation. It is supported by a three-year Action Plan, which presents actions and performance measures, aligned to existing Council resources.

For more information and to view the Strategy and Action Plan, visit Council's website.

    Smart cities use digital technology, data and innovation to make our lives easier. Some of these smart technologies and ideas include:

    • Wi-fi

    • Smart environmental meters (e.g. sensors that can detect when the oval needs to be watered)

    • Phone applications (e.g. smart phone applications showing up-to-date traffic conditions)

    • Real-time data and analytics (e.g. information about how many people attend a football match)

    • Open data (e.g. information about your local area - air quality, traffic conditions, humidity)

    • Smart street lighting (e.g. street lights that can turn themselves on when there is

    • Drones (e.g. very small unmanned aircraft, which can deliver food)

    • Living labs (i.e. a small part of a local city used to trial and test new smart technology)

    • Innovation (e.g. the design and creation of a wind turbine to use wind power to make renewable electricity)

    • Co-design with citizens (e.g. engaging with the local community to plan how North Sydney can become a Smart City)
