Analysis of Leichhardt Council Management Strategy and Finances

Version 1: 14 May 2009

Leichhardt Council is exhibiting their Draft Management Plan and Budget 2009/2013 for public comment until 9 June 2009.

The Draft Document (1,540 KB PDF 300 pages) has been published on the council's website however, it is not particularly public friendly or transparent. This is an important document that is justifying an increase in Council Charges and should link to the services council provides.

It should also be noted, that the Annandale foreshore parklands - Federal Park, including the current site of the Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery and the federal park wetlands are in the City of Sydney
