Inner West Council is a new council formed by the merger of the former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville Councils.

The merger 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.

Justices of the Peace

A Justice of the Peace (JP) is a person in the community who is authorised to independently witness and sign statutory declarations and affidavits, and to certify copies of original documents.

Petersham Service Centre

Council's Petersham Service Centre (see "Face-to-face" above for contact details and business hours) offers a limited JP service to the community.

Please note that this service cannot guaranteed at all times as it is dependent on the availability of JP staff. The JP service is not available between the hours of 12 noon and 2pm and after 4pm each work day.

To ensure we service all of our customers in a timely manner, we ask that you present no more than 6 documents at any one time.

Please also be aware that JPs do not have access to photocopying facilities: if you require certification of copies of original documents, you must bring the originals and copies with you.
