The Committee unanimously supported the recommendation.


In early 2022, the City introduced a series of Sydney Summer Streets events closing several high streets to support communities during the pandemic. The initiative was an opportunity for local businesses to extend their trade onto footpaths and outdoor settings. Following the success of the Sydney Summer Streets events, the City now plans to hold similar Sydney Streets events on an ongoing basis to support communities and local businesses.

The City has applied for the temporary road closures of Darlinghurst Road and surrounding side streets in Potts Point for the Sydney Streets 2024 on Saturday, 17 February 2024 from 9am to 11.30pm.
