Consultation has concluded

Council has heard community concerns about competing demands for parking. Localised precinct studies provide a better understanding of the current parking situation and key issues.

Leichhardt West precinct refers to a study area bounded by Parramatta Road, Hawthorne Canal, Darley Road and Elswick Street. View an image of the study area.

Hear from Jason Scoufis, project lead about what's been happening

A draft Report examining the parking situation has been prepared by GTA Consultants. It presents 12 proposals to better manage parking and competing needs of workers, residents, commuters and businesses in the study area.
