Sustainable Chippendale

A Sustainable Suburb In the Making

Sustainable Chippendale is a community initiative setup to support the Sustainable Streets and Community Plan in Chippendale. If you are passionate about sustainability we'd love you to join us in getting behind this ground breaking project to establish a practical model for sustainable inner city living in Sydney.


On 25 October, over twenty delegates representing government and industries from the Chinese city of Hangzhou toured Michael's Sustainable House and the Chippendale road gardens.

Hangzhou, a coastal city of 6 million people, has been rapidly expanding over the past decade and is experiencing many ecological and social issues due to urban development.

The delegation visited Chippendale to investigate the progressive Sustainable Streets and Communities Plan currently with City of Sydney council and learn more about making their city more healthy and resilient.
