We’re paving the way for longer-term changes to public spaces across NSW by working with local councils through a number of grant programs. These programs enable councils and communities to reimagine their local public spaces like their streets, laneways, plazas and more, as places people want to spend time in, are proud of and cherish. Round 2 of Streets as Shared Spaces and Your High Street are currently underway.
Learn more about grants available for councils to transform their public spaces as places for people.
Streets as Shared Spaces Program
We’re supporting councils to trial projects that test permanent changes that strengthen the amenity, accessibility and economic vitality of high streets and surrounding areas.
Your High Street Program
We’re working with councils across NSW to make permanent improvements to the amenity and functionality of their high streets.
Summer Night Fund Program
We have supported councils to put on free, safe, activations and events, creating opportunities for people to connect and bring The Festival of Place to you – wherever you are in NSW.
