Night time economy discussion paper: City of Parramatta August 2017
City of Parramatta LGA (the City) is transforming. It is set to become Sydney’s “Central City”: a centre of services, infrastructure and employment for Western Sydney where more than half of Sydney’s population live1. Given this context, the opportunity for the City to
grow our Night Time Economy (NTE) to be more diverse, welcoming and vibrant, is now. This document, City of Parramatta – A NTE Discussion Paper (Paper) proposes ideas to develop the City’s future NTE Strategy – a framework that will further encourage the City
at night as a vibrant, diverse and welcoming space. The NTE will be driven and inspired by strong inter-industry partnerships, including the community, creatives, entrepreneurs, businesses,
police, landowners, innovative investors and other government agencies. As the City continues to flourish, we must address negative perceptions of the local night time experience, encourage positive recognition of the significant steps forward in growing our City’s NTE, and continue to imagine and shape our future NTE.
