Welcome to Inner West Council

Inner West CouncilThis is a new Council formed by the merger of the former Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt Councils. Find out more about the merger, what the new Council looks like, and what it means for residents and ratepayers at the Inner West Council website.

A new Council website is in development. Until this is available, you can continue to access your services and other information here.

What will happen to my services?

The amalgamation won't have any immediate impact on your services. Your bins will be collected on the same day, you can pay your rates in the same way, and other services will remain in place too. Over the next few months, Council will review all services to make sure they remain efficient and effective. Until then, everything is business as usual. For more information visit the Inner West Council FAQs page.
