Planning for our future

Inner West Council was created on 12 May 2016 from the merger of the former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville councils. Proudly serving our community of over 192,000 residents across 26 suburbs, Inner West Council is 1,250 staff strong.

Local councils are complex organisations, providing hundreds of different services every day.

Draft Operational Plan and Budget 2017-18 coverOperational Plan and Budget 2017/18

Inner West Council's Operational Plan and Budget 2017/18 sets out Council's proposed ongoing activities, key initiatives and associated budgets.

The Operational Plan has been developed to ensure existing levels of service are maintained across the area as well as achieving an ambitious schedule of infrastructure projects.

Council remains committed to reducing the infrastructure backlog, including a four year, achievable capital works program that sees a number of large scale projects progressing during the 2017/18 financial year.
