Job Description

  • Greater Cities Commission, non-executive role
  • Represent unique diversity and opportunities
  • Build resilient, sustainable communities

The Greater Cities Commission will bring together the Western Parkland City, Central River City and Eastern Harbour Cities in Greater Sydney with the Lower Hunter and Greater Newcastle City, Central Coast City, and Illawarra-Shoalhaven City to create a globally competitive city region. This evolution of the metropolis of three cities vision led by the Greater Cities Commission signals a new era for strategic city planning in Australia, creating a series of interconnected dynamic and resilient places, each with their clear and unique identity.

The Western Parkland City is built on diversity and the economic powerhouse of Western Sydney, comprising eight local government areas: the Blue Mountains, Camden, Campbelltown, Fairfield, Hawkesbury, Liverpool, Penrith and Wollondilly.

The Commission’s focus is on bringing government, industry and community stakeholders together to collaborate on future planning for a new city region that benefits local communities. Each of the six cities will build on its own signature strengths and character and enjoy the benefits of combined power in a world-class city region.

City Commissioners play a critical role through constructive relationships with stakeholders, particularly local government. They are a conduit between each City and the Commission, listening, communicating and leading the debate on policy and thought leadership to create the Region and City Plans and implement projects.

City Commissioners are appointed by the Minister for Cities after seeking advice from relevant local councils. They are remunerated non-executive roles with an indicative time commitment of up to two days a week. It is essential that a City Commissioner resides in the City they represent.

We are seeking expressions of interest from leaders who are respected for their strategic thinking, collaborative stakeholder relationships, knowledge and passion for the Western Parkland City’s community and opportunities in a global context.
