This year has been challenging for so many people. Council has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by adapting to each public health order in a way that maintains services to residents as close as possible to our regular level of service provision.
Throughout this time we have done this while maintaining a strong financial position and continuing to deliver key projects.
Samantha Riley Drive works have been completed and the upgrade to Hezlett Road is underway. The new car park is open at Bernie Mullane Reserve and Kellyville Park has been upgraded. Our most significant project, The Waves Aquatic Centre upgrade is progressing well and will deliver a brand new Olympic sized pool, children’s splash area and many other features.
We have continued to deliver road improvements, new footpaths and playgrounds, including the new Rutherford Avenue Reserve which offers a village green, dog park, playground and cycle track. In October, our Local Strategic Planning Statement was adopted following community consultation and will guide future growth, setting out a plan for providing land for housing, jobs, lifestyle and recreation. We’ve been working hard to ensure Council is doing everything possible to continue to improve our residents’ quality of life, especially during these tough times.
Christmas is almost upon us, and I’d like to wish everyone a relaxing holiday season, a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
