    After considering the feedback received, a decision has been made to proceed with the pilot in Cary St, Leichhardt.

    In response to feedback received during the latest engagement, we've adapted the pilot program to be a one-off event rather than a 6 month trial as previously planned.


    Following the event Council officers will complete an evaluation which will form the basis of any future decisions around ‘Play Streets’ initiatives in the inner west.

    We will now work with the local volunteer organisers on progressing the event.
