Thank you to everyone who took part in Inner West Council's survey on park safety in Camperdown Memorial Rest Park and Fleming Playground. The results are due to be tabled at our Council meeting on Tuesday 11 December, and they make for interesting reading.Read more
Transport for NSW has recently announced changes to Inner West bus routes that will see the 422 bus that runs to and from Martin Place terminate at Central instead from 6 May 2018.
This will see Inner West residents in Camperdown, Newtown, St Peters, Sydenham and Tempe forced to catch two or more buses to get to and from the CBD. As well adding to travel times, this change will make using public transport more difficult for people who can't switch buses with ease.
Sign the petition below to call on the Minister for Transport and Transport for NSW to reverse this change so the 422 bus service continues to start and finish in Sydney's CBD.
I was contacted in late February by residents in Lord St Newtown who had discovered they had an ‘unregistered dealing’ on their land titles as a result of unfinalised acquisitions of land under their properties for the Sydney Metro project. This has stopped some residents from refinancing or even selling their homes, with no resolution in site - which is why I'll be moving that Inner West Council writes to the relevant Ministers to demand urgent action at our meeting next week.Read more
