Inner West Greenway (Marion St to Bay)

Consultation on the Blue-Green Grid Strategy.

Community feedback dates 16 March -  30 April 2023

"Council is developing a strategy to create a network of blue and green connections across the Inner West to help improve accessibility, recreation, biodiversity, and lifestyle for all.

The Blue-Green Grid Strategy will create a plan for providing easy, enjoyable walking and cycling connections between the places you live and work (town centres, schools, public transport hubs) with the places you relax and recharge (harbours, rivers, parks, playgrounds).

The Strategy will provide a detailed plan for how we can connect areas of high environmental value, providing more viable areas of habitat and links to scenic landscapes. Popular walking tracks along the Cooks River and Sydney Harbour will be enhanced and complemented by improved connections through tree-lined streets and established urban parks."
