Guidelines & Overview

North Sydney Community Precincts

North Sydney Council is committed to the principles of 'Open Government' through ongoing communication and consultation. In line with this approach, Council established the 'Community Precinct System', in the late 1970s, encouraging residents, workers, students and property owners to take an active role in providing input into the operations of Council.

Precinct Committees are run by residents and are advisory. Precinct Committee meetings are open forums which anyone can attend and consult on a range of community issues. The meetings are one avenue for informing Council of community opinion and maintaining two-way communications between community members and Council staff and Councillors. Precincts comments are responded to and considered by Council in its statutory decision making role. Precincts also encourage social interaction within the local community by coordinating events.
