As Sydney closes in on its next population
milestone of 5 million, it remains Australia’s
leading city, not only in size but in other
measures as well. Yet more importantly it is
a global city with a very strong international
brand that stands in the top listings of many
measures from liveability to business
performance, from diversity to climate and
amenity. Sydney is also an innovative city,
continually adapting to the trends and shown
through its rich cultural diversity, strength in
attracting investment and responsiveness to
the ever-changing generations.
The challenge for Sydney’s future is to ensure that it responds to population growth yet
maintains its world-beating lifestyle and that its liveability rises to match its increasing density.
This is the purpose of this Urban Living Index. We have designed it to track the five key
categories that produce a measure of liveability in a city that is moving from suburban spread
to urban growth. While a city can always improve, these results show that the city planning and
unit development are creating thriving urban communities, as evidenced by the results that
show superior liveability in high density Sydney suburbs.
There remain some infrastructure shortfalls and affordability challenges, however this inaugural
Urban Living Index shows that the vertical communities of the 21st century are meeting the
lifestyle needs of Sydneysiders just as those achieved by the horizontal suburbs of the 20th Century.
