Western Sydney City Deal - Implementation and Governance

The Western Sydney City Deal is a transformative approach to working across three levels of government to bring together commitments, funding and resources for the people of the Western City. We will work together over the next 20 years to implement the Deal and secure the success of the Western City.

Enduring governance and collaboration

Delivering on our vision for the Western City requires strong accountability to make sure we stay on track and strong collaboration to address challenges as they emerge. The City Deal establishes a formal, long-term governance structure for all levels of government to work together and monitor City Deal implementation.

We will publish an implementation plan for the City Deal by the end of 2018 that defines how and when commitments will be delivered, and who will be responsible.

A City Deal Implementation Board is responsible for reporting on the progress of the City Deal to Ministers and Mayors and establishing stakeholder mechanisms. Annual reports on the City Deal’s implementation and a formal review after three years will hold governments to account.

Monitoring key performance metrics

To monitor the impact of City Deal commitments, governments will agree and publish key performance metrics as part of the implementation plan. The National Cities Performance Framework and the Greater Sydney Commission’s Data Hub provide a wide range of complementary performance indicators to track the economic, social and environmental performance of Western Sydney.

Realising opportunities for Indigenous communities

The three levels of government commit to work with Indigenous organisations in the Western City, including the NSW Aboriginal Land Council, Local Aboriginal Land Councils, native title holders, and other Indigenous groups to realise economic, social and cultural outcomes for Indigenous people in Western Sydney.
