The Committee for Sydney’s ‘Sydney as a 24-Hour City’ report identified serious concerns with the lockout laws’ impacts on Sydney’s nightlife.
It also made useful recommendations to improve vibrancy and provide more options late at night that could happen regardless of the laws, including opening cultural institutions and shops later while providing supporting transport. These recommendations are not controversial and are in line with the City of Sydney's strategies and the government’s Sydney Night Time Economy Task Force and the Sydney Night Time Economy Roundtable. If Sydney is seriously going to be a global city, we need to remove the 1.30am lockout for small bars and well managed venues.
The report is HERE.
