Abstract: The state regulates sex industry types in accordance with a range of complex, overlapping and often conflicting legal, policing, planning and administrative mechanisms. The sex industry in Sydney is currently regulated through all levels of Australian government. New South Wales (NSW) is seen as leading the charge within Australia for its neoliberal market model of occupational and premises regulation. Taking a transdisciplinary research design, this paper identifies positive steps towards citizenship and the sex industry in inner Sydney. We consider how local authorities have attempted to engage with these issues in our analysis. First, we outline the law reforms that have occurred. Second, we explore how local authorities in Sydney have sought to place sex industry-based participatory processes. Third, we discuss how engagement of the sex industry within the citizenry extends to a provision of safe and violence-free working environment. This research is part of a two-year transdisciplinary project, ‘People, Place, Property, and Planning – Sex Industry Dynamics in New South Wales’, funded by the University of Technology, Sydney
