Your Inner West Independent

Pauline Lockie is your progressive independent Councillor for the Damun/Stanmore ward of Inner West Council. She is dedicated to making sure our Inner West remains the best place in Sydney to live, work and play.

Meet Pauline Lockie

As a local activist, founding member of the WestCONnex Action Group and independent Councillor at Inner West Council, Pauline has been a tireless fighter for our community.

Due to the wide-ranging impact WestConnex is having on the Inner West, Pauline’s advocacy expanded to include issues such as public transport, sustainable cities, development, the right to protest, democratic planning, and more.

In 2016, Pauline’s advocacy for our community was recognised when she was named the Newtown electorate’s Local Woman of the Year.

Pauline is passionate about liveable cities, local democracy, equality and sustainable development. She has proven herself to be someone who is fearless about speaking truth to power, standing up to the government to protect the long-term future of our community, and supporting residents across the Inner West.

Since being elected, Pauline has brought Pride Seats celebrating key LGBTIQ+ activists to the Inner West, fought for the preservation of our industrial/creative areas, supported local businesses, campaigned against the relaxation of tree protections, and much more. She has also personally helped hundreds of people get the outcomes they need from Council, and remains dedicated to making the organisation and its processes more accessible to its residents.
