Project updates

Project details

Inner West Council developed a draft Leichhardt Park Plan of Management (PoM) with community input. After NSW Government approval, the community now has a last chance to have their say on the latest amendments and key proposals before it goes to Council for adoption.

Latest amendments and key proposals:

  • Proposed pedestrian link road has been changed to allow one-way vehicle access and traffic calming measures (refer to Zone 4 on page 61 of the draft PoM)
  • Leases and licensing section has been updated with more details of the permitted uses within the park (refer to pages 32-35 of the draft PoM)
  • A separate para-rowing facility adjacent to Blue Hippo playground
  • A synthetic surface development with new amenities at Leichhardt Oval No. 2
  • Enhanced bush care initiatives
  • New skate park adjacent to Leichhardt Oval #3 and the Le Montage Function Centre
  • Future expansion by Leichhardt Rowing Club to the east (onto the site with the redundant Air Transponder)
  • Recommendation for a separate Bay Run Master Plan and Leichhardt Oval Master Plan, which will guide their long-term management.
