Inner West Mayor Rochelle Porteous invites you to a public meeting


Callan Park is at risk.

The NSW Government released the Exposure Bill; Greater Sydney Parklands Trust on Friday 1 October. It is proposing changes to the way Callan Park is managed.

This is privatisation by stealth – gutting the Callan Park Act for commercial gain.

Commercial leases of up to 50 years would be offered for some of the most iconic buildings on the site.

The Government wants to remove council as the consent authority and change the Callan Park (Special Provisions) Act 2002.

This will result in privatisation and commercialisation. This is what the Inner West has been fearing for 20 years - that the NSW Government will sell off Callan Park to the highest bidder.

You can make a submission on the Exposure Bill on the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment page which is on exhibition until 29 October.


Please join us online on Wednesday 27 October at 6pm using this Microsoft Teams Live Event link to hear important information about the Bill, what Council is doing and how to make a submission.
