The City of Sydney’s summer streets series has tapped into the global trend towards reclaiming public spaces for local communities during the pandemic.

The council has shut its best-known inner city high streets to traffic for one day, with cars and buses replaced by street furniture, a crew of roving entertainers and pubs or bars that spill out onto the road.

Loosening the city’s tight regulations and putting trust in the public and local communities – who know their neighbourhoods intimately – can be hugely important” to enliven public spaces and make them more inclusive, helping recovery from COVID life.
