National Urban Policy

Our cities and suburbs continue to present opportunities and challenges as they play a critical role in Australia’s economic, social and environmental future. As our cities grow and change, we have an opportunity to plan for and create sustainable and adaptive urban environments that meet the needs of current and future generations.

The Australian Government is developing the first National Urban Policy in over a decade. We want your feedback on how we can work together to improve Australia’s cities and suburbs.

The draft National Urban Policy seeks to provide an urban lens to view future policies, programs and investment. This focus helps support the Australian Government’s goals for our urban areas to be more liveable, equitable, productive, sustainable and resilient.

Your views will help us develop the final National Urban Policy and guide how the Australian Government can support sustainable growth in our cities and suburbs. You can have you say or in person at a workshop on:

  • June 17 – Darwin
  • June 19 – Perth
  • June 24 – Sydney
  • June 26 – Melbourne
  • June 28 – Adelaide
  • July 1 – Brisbane
  • July 2 – Canberra
  • July 3 – Hobart

The Government will consider all feedback prior to finalising the National Urban Policy. The consultation is to seek feedback on how government, industry and community can work together to improve our cities and suburbs, both now and for future generations.
