Local Matters Forums

Getting to the heart of local matters

Inner West Council has embarked on a new era in engagement, consultation and customer service. We hold a series of monthly, face-to-face forums where Ward Councillors and the executive staff of Council attend to listen to your ideas and concerns about how your community can be improved.

During the forum, staff record all issues raised by residents and ensure responses are provided after the meeting in a summary document.

Dates and locations for 2023

Forum venues are rotated across the various Council wards each year.

Two weeks prior to each forum, you’ll be able to register to attend and pre-submit an issue at yoursay.innerwest.nsw.gov.au.
