PAC says no to the GreenWay

The findings have been released from the Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) for the Allied Mills (Flour Mill) site in Summer Hill. Disappointingly the 350 metre section of the GreenWay trail from Longport Street to Old Canterbury Road will not be built as a condition of approval. Neither will any further measures be taken to protect the bandicoots and other local biodiversity. This section of the GreenWay would have provided much needed active transport options for the residents of this high density residential development. We would like thank Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville Councils, the Councillors, Friends of the GreenWay and the many other community groups and members who put in submissions supporting the GreenWay trail and biodiversity. The Determination report  and other documents can be found on the Department of Planning website.

Welcome to the GreenWay website!

 The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove.  This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.  

This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments.  With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!
