Residents of Martin Place's tent city have agreed to relocate to a safe space.

The NSW premier has threatened action against a homeless camp in Sydney's CBD after a plan agreed by the city council and tent dwellers to move out overnight fell through.

Gladys Berejiklian will speak to her Liberal and National colleagues on Tuesday about "a plan" to clear the camp in Martin Place outside the Reserve Bank of Australia.

"Last night I heard the mayor say that the tent city would be gone overnight and that hasn't happened, and I said we would give council until last night, it has not happened, so we'll be taking action today," she told reporters in Sydney.
