Good evening, Parramatta: We are Sydney’s Central City – open late for business

The City of Parramatta is experiencing an unprecedented level of resident, worker, student and visitor population growth and a record level of investment into Sydney’s Central City. With the third largest night time economy by turnover in New South Wales, we are a well-established night time destination known locally, regionally and nationally.

However, we recognise the need to diversify our night time economy to meet the needs of our diverse community, provide greater opportunities for local businesses and to attract and retain talent and investment in our City.

The Draft Parramatta Night City Framework 2020-2024 (PNCF) outlines a series of strategic actions for planning for the future growth, management and diversification of our City’s night time economy, and preparing our City for a transition to a 24-hour centre in our CBD with later trading local centres.

The Framework identifies six key strategic goals for the development of a night city in Parramatta that is safe, vibrant, diverse and interesting. It identifies key focus areas for Council in achieving our goals - planning and regulation, community safety and engagement, business and cultural development, research and advocacy, infrastructure & marketing and promotion.

The Framework will be the roadmap by which Council will create the right conditions to enable our CBD to become a 24-hour centre in the future, with later trading centres full of interesting things to see and do.
