Last chance to provide feedback for new Greek precinct in Marrickville and Dulwich Hill

·

Greeks across NSW have until tomorrow to provide their feedback towards the new precinct in Marrickville and Dulwich Hill, which is to be renamed to commemorate the contribution of Greek migrants.

The name change of the precinct, which the Mayor of Inner West Council, Darcy Byrne, referenced as a ‘Little Athens’, is done to honour the incredible contribution of Greek Australians to the Inner West.

“This is a gesture of respect to all the Greek migrants who helped establish the Inner West as the birthplace of Australia multiculturalism,” the Mayor says.

“In the ’60s Greek was commonly spoken on the streets and there was high demand for authentic Greek products and experiences – delis, restaurants, cake shops, clothing stores, to name a few.”

People have the chance to provide their thoughts on where they think the “heart” of the new Greek precinct should be placed.

“The Council intends to honour and celebrate the long-standing relationship between the Inner West community and the people of Greece by naming a Greek precinct in Marrickville and-or Dulwich Hill,” the Inner West Council media team told The Greek Herald upon its announcement.

The renaming of the precinct will completed after a period of consultation with local Marrickville and Dulwich Hill Greek residents, organisations, wider community and businesses – as well as the Greek Consulate General.
