Background

At the Tuesday 27 April 2021 Ordinary Meeting, Council authorised the public exhibition of the draft 2021/22 Operational Plan, Budget and Schedule of Fees and Charges.

This document outlines the projects that are proposed to be delivered in the coming 2021/22 financial year to achieve the longer-term community goals and priorities as detailed in the Community Strategic Plan - CBCity 2028. This document also details the budget required to maintain and improve roads, footpaths, parks, buildings, sporting fields and other Council assets throughout your City.

This proposal

In 2021/22 Council will commit to spending $359.4 million on services and facilities, and to deliver a $57.5 million capital program which provides for $20.8 million in road and transport improvements, $1.8 million on footpaths and boardwalks, $5.3 million in town centres, $12.2 million on parks and sporting facilities, $4.3 million on community building upgrades, and $3.4 million on water quality improvement. During 2021/22, the community can expect to see:

  • a new community space in Hurlstone Park;
  • a new splash park in Greenacre;
  • a new play space in Parry Park, Punchbowl Park, and Peace Park;
  • field reconstruction at Earlwood Oval and Walshaw Park, new athletics track at Kelso Park North, and a new synthetic playing surface at Padstow Park;
  • designs for a new community centre in Thurina Park and Griffith Park;
  • scoping and designs for a new Sustainable Resource Recovery Facility at Kelso Park and a Towards Net Zero emissions plan;

  • Smart initiatives like Smart parking in Marion Street, the Activated Data Roadmap, and SafeTV school crossings;
  • initiatives from a Night Time Economy Action Plan; and
  • town centre upgrades and master plans, and neighbourhood scale streetscape works at Revesby and Greenacre.
  • Due to current health concerns, we will not be hosting face-to-face community information sessions and printed copies of the documents will not be available at libraries and customer service centres.
