Erskineville Community Garden Proposal

posted 7 May 2013, 04:31 by Friends of Erskineville   [ updated 7 May 2013, 04:33 ]

Dear Resident,

The City of Sydney is seeking community feedback on a proposal from local residents to formalise existing community gardening at 54-56 Erskineville Road, Erskineville, into an approved community garden.


The City property is between residential dwellings and is now being maintained by volunteers from the Erskineville Community Garden group. 

The proposal seeks to formalise the current site plan and operations - the proposed management plan for the garden is also available in the library.

The City invites your comments on this community garden proposal before Friday 24 May 2013.

You can comment:

All feedback will be considered, along with the City’s Community Gardens Policy, which includes details on location, safety, design, accessibility, solar access and community support.

A recommendation about this proposal will then be made to the City’s Environment and Heritage Committee. People who comment on the proposal will be advised about the committee meeting date and venue, and have the opportunity to speak there.

To speak to a Council officer about this proposal, please contact Raewyn Broadfoot, Community Gardens Coordinator on 9265 9786 or email

More information about Community Gardens is also available on the Green Villages website.
