Cooks River Catchment and Botany - what matters?

Inner West in partnership with the Cooks River Alliance want to know what you value about the Cooks River and Botany areas. Tell us what matters to you and be in the draw for a chance to win a $100 voucher.


Inner West Council is committed to improving the health of the Cooks River Catchment and local waterways as a member of the Cooks River Alliance. In 2019, the Cooks River Alliance partners, Sydney Water and the City of Sydney, with catchment community groups, completed the CMP’s Stage 1 Scoping Study.

What is happening now?

In Stage 2, we are doing detailed studies to ensure that we have the right information to deliver actions that support people, places and the environment in the Cooks River Catchment and Botany. This survey is for the Cooks River Catchment Coastal Management Program (CMP). It will help us understand what you value about the Cooks River and Botany Bay areas, their tributaries, and wetlands. It will help us plan well for works and services along the river and in the catchments.

Tell us about:

  • the waterway places you value and what you value there
  • the things to change and improve in and around the waterways
  • the most important things for future catchment management

Helps us understand the relationship between people and waterways of the Cooks River catchment better.

Share your thoughts and go into the draw to win one of five $100 prizes.
