Policies on Exhibition

Draft Single Use Plastics Policy - submissions close 5pm 21 August 2019


North Sydney Council has been an early adopter of the plastic free movement, discouraging non-recyclable and single use materials through its Sustainable Public Events Policy that has been in place since 2012. Council has taken its stance one step further and developed a single-use plastics ban for its own operations, events and venues.

This policy will apply to Council purchases and to community/commercial hirers of Council venues such as building, parks, sportsgrounds and pools.

Reusable or compostable alternatives will be usedwherever feasible instead of disposable items like cups and lids, straws, bags, cutlery, plates, bottled water, take away containers, single serve sachets and unnecessary packaging.

For Council’s commercial tenants this Policy applies to straws and single-use plastic bags only.

For further information, see Council’s report detailing the Draft Single Use Plastics Policy (available in document library Council report - OSE01) or contact Council’s Senior Sustainability Programs Coordinator, Niki Carey on 9936 8100.


Draft Placemaking Policy - submissions close 5pm 21 August 2019

A Placemaking Policy has been drafted to outline Council’s commitment and approach to placemaking, which is to:

  1. acknowledge the role of placemaking to reinforce local identity and character and enhance amenity;
  2. acknowledge placemaking as an essential vehicle for the achievement of multiple Council and community goals;
  3. encourage the application of placemaking principles to the design and management of physical improvements within the public domain where appropriate and practicable, and enabled byresourcing; and
  4. encourage collaboration to develop placemaking initiatives in public places that improve the quality of life forthe North Sydney community.

On 22 July 2019, Council considered a report detailing the Draft Placemaking Policy and resolved to endorse the policy for public exhibition (available in document library Council report - CiS04).
