Formatted abstract
Planning theorists have increasingly argued for more ‘relational’ strategic plans that are conceptual rather than deterministic, with an emphasis on nodes and flows. Contemporary city strategies in Europe have incorporated this approach, but metropolitan strategies in Australia have remained very detailed and deterministic, reflecting historical institutional and other development circumstances. Nevertheless, this situation might be changing. The NSW state government's recent Metro2036 strategy for Sydney and Sydney City Council's Sustainable Sydney 2030 strategy for Sydney City both place relational planning features at their centre, notably the global economic corridor in the former and the five themes that constitute the Strategy Map in the latter. The article examines the rationale and role of these relational elements in the two strategies.

规划理论学者越来越强调较注重`关系'的战略规划。这样的规划是观念性的,而不是决定论的,重节点和流动。当代欧洲各种城市战略已然采纳了这种方式,但澳大利亚大都市战略仍然停留在细节和决定论上。这是因为体制的历史和其他发展环境所造成的。然而,这种状况可以改变。新南威尔士州政府最近提出了《悉尼都市2036 战略》,悉尼市议会也提出了《悉尼市可持续发展2030 战略》。两项议案都以关系规划为其核心,前者提出建设全球经济走廊,后者提出战略地图的五大主题。本文考察这两项战略的合理性以及关系元素在其中的作用。
