Greenway Missing Links Master Plan - Unlocking the Greenway
Monday 23 October 2017
Inner West and Canterbury Bankstown councils are inviting citizens to comment on The GreenWay Missing Links Master Plan.
The GreenWay is a 5.8km environmental and active travel corridor linking the Parramatta River at Iron Cove with the Cooks River at Earlwood.
Survey closes 15 November 2017.
Following the route of the inner west Light Rail, the GreenWay features bike paths and foreshore walks, cultural and historical sites, cafes, bushcare sites and a range of parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities.
The inner west community and local councils have been campaigning for over 10 years to complete the GreenWay’s ‘missing links’.
In mid-2016, the NSW Government and Inner West Council announced a joint commitment of $14.5 million towards the cost of completing these links, which will unlock approximately 3ha of open space not currently accessible to the community.
Concurrent with the design of some of the key missing links, Council is developing a Master Plan for the whole 5.8km GreenWay corridor, which will guide the delivery of landscaping and infrastructure within the GreenWay corridor over the next 10 years.
Inner West Council is now inviting community input into both the design of the missing links, and how best to use the unlocked and existing open space in the GreenWay corridor.
Go toyoursayinnerwest.com.au/greenwayto take part in a survey, or to find out about onsite engagement events to be held along the GreenWay.
The feedback will build on other work and community engagement over the past 10 years.
In early 2018 the draft Master Plan will go on public exhibition and open for final comment to make sure the plan has got it right. Construction of the missing links and priority Master Plan works will commence in late 2018.
