The City of Sydney Council operates 17 community centres and library spaces that offer activities and services to support the community.
These centres and spaces are valued as they enable our local communities to have social connection and affordable access to a range of learning, creative, cultural, health and wellbeing activities.
To help make sure the changing needs of these activities and services are met, the City of Sydney Council are seeking feedback from the community. They are keen to hear from people who visit their centres and from people who don’t, by encouraging us to share our thoughts and ideas on what is offered in our local community.
Your feedback and ideas for any improvement on the programs and services is important to help shape the City of Sydney’s future plans for Alexandria and the Sydney community.
Public Community consultation period is from
1 November 2022 to 15 December 2022.

North Eveleigh – Public Meeting
Friends of Erskineville are organising a public meeting to discuss the proposed development at North Eveleigh.
The North Eveleigh Paintshop precinct is 5 hectares of precious, heritage-rich public land adjacent to Redfern Station that the NSW government plans to privatise and commercialise.
In 2020, the land was transferred from RailCorp to the controversial Transport Asset Holding Entity (TAHE), described as an ‘accounting sham‘.
The project was announced in July and declared State Significant Development, giving the Planning Minister complete discretion to overrule the usual planning processes.
The plans will result in 1.4 hectares of publicly accessible open space: essentially an office park with a small amount of ‘affordable housing’ and no public housing. In a recent Sydney Morning Herald article, former City of Sydney councillor Philip Thalis described it and other related plans as the ‘bastard offspring’ of Barangaroo. Our community campaign for an active transport bridge to South Eveleigh has been ignored, despite being promised as far back as 2006. The meeting will have an introduction from REDWatch’s Geoff Turnbull with plenty of time for discussion. Local Greens MP Jenny Leong and Labor candidate David Hetherington will be there to hear your views and respond. Councillors William Chan, Sylvie Ellsmore and Linda Scott will also be joining us.
Come along to this important public meeting to learn more and discuss what the community really needs. If we want our neighbourhood to be the best it can be, we need to show that we care and get our elected representatives to help us achieve it.
WHERE: Erskineville Town Hall
WHEN: 2pm Sunday November 6th
