NSW Public Spaces Charter - apply to become a signatory

The NSW Public Spaces Charter (PDF 3.3MB) has been developed to support the planning, design, management and activation of public spaces in NSW. It identifies ten principles for quality public space, developed through evidence-based research and discussions with public space experts and community members.
