Happy Art Month, art lovers! The City of Sydney just endorsed a plan to make the process of commissioning pieces of street art in our city much easier.
he City of Sydney has recommended a major policy change to relax the restrictions on Street Art in our city. This change would allow private property owners in non-heritage areas to commission street art on their walls, without the need to apply for Development Application.
This doesn't change our commitment to getting rid of obviously offensive works, which will still be removed as soon as possible with City staff continuing to inspect graffiti hotspots every day.
Another great development in this new plan is the addition of a Street Art Register, to help document and explain more about the unique artworks across our city.
Let's celebrate the great artists we have in Sydney and let more people know where we can seek out their work.
We’re really excited to see more beautiful art on Sydney’s streets and in its laneways. We hope you are too. You can read more on our proposal here.
