Getting to the heart of local matters

Inner West Council invites you to join ward Councillors and Council Executive staff at your Local Matters Forum. These forums provide an opportunity for residents to have a constructive conversation with elected representatives and senior staff and to raise ideas for improvements to your area.

Collectively we can continue to improve the way Council delivers for our local communities.
