Description

SGS recently delivered a workshop on City Deals, the Australian Government’s partnership model for the delivery of infrastructure projects by federal, state and local governments. With a focus on how to make City Deals relevant to Australian communities, we looked at the Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan, along with press articles announcing potential City Deals in Western Sydney, Townsville and Launceston.

The SGS workshop sought to define City Deals, explore how economic productivity and growth are enhanced by infrastructure, and how government investors can generate revenue from such infrastructure projects. Finally, we looked at how communities can approach building the strategic business case for a City Deal.
