Help Return Whites Creek to A More Natural State

Everyone interested in the naturalisation of a section of Whites Creek near Rozelle Bay in Annandale are invited to attend a community workshop this Saturday (26 November).

Whites Creek was once a natural waterway before being concreted to improve sanitation.

Both Sydney Water and Council officers will be in attendance at the morning drop-in session to answer questions and present information to the local community about the naturalisation process.

They will be providing information about how a 420 metre section of the canal can be transformed to a more natural state by replacing concrete banks with ones made of rocks and native plants.

Council maintains a commitment to improving waterways for local residents and visitors across the Inner West and its work with Sydney Water at Whites Creek aims to help maintain the stormwater system and protect the local environment.

In September, residents were sent out a community survey asking how they use the area around Whites Creek.

This feedback has helped develop some initial draft concept designs which will be on on view Saturday.

Your feedback from Saturday’s session will help Council and Sydney Water develop concept designs for White’s Creek.

A construction timeframe is still yet to confirmed subject to available funds, prioritisation of projects, and environmental approvals but residents are encouraged to have their say on this local waterway.

Residents are encouraged to just drop in anytime from 9am till 11am this Saturday next to Whites Creek near the corner of Railway Parade and Brennan Street with no need to pre register.

Those who can’t make it on the day are encouraged to have your say online at
