Community Strategic Plan
Council is now preparing its first Community Strategic Plan which will identify the priorities, aspirations and vision of the community.
We have developed a short survey for the community to share their thoughts on medium and long term priorities. The draft Community Strategic Plan will be ready for the new Council to consider following the elections in September 2017.
You can also obtain a copy of the survey from Council’s Service Centres, libraries, Museum & Gallery and Community Centres.
Household Clean Up Survey
We currently operate two different types of household clean up services where residents can place their unwanted household items on the kerbside for collection. Both household clean up collection services are offered to residents two times per year.
We are currently reviewing the following services:
Pre-booked Service: the former Hurstville City Council residents currently have a pre-booked service where residents can call the waste hotline and book in their clean up on the next available date.
Scheduled Service: the former Kogarah City Council residents currently have a scheduled service where by residents receive an information leaflet in their letter box with their next scheduled date of their clean up and when they can place their items out for collection.
If you are a local resident, please complete our survey and provide your feedback on which service you would prefer.
Carss Bush Park Channel Naturalisation
Council is in the process of developing designs for Stage Two of the naturalisation of the Carss Bush Park foreshore.
This project will focus on continuing the work started along the Carss Bush Park playing fields foreshore, and will involve the design and construction of a naturalised creek-line and environmentally friendly seawall between Beach Street and the western side of the baths in the park. The naturalised seawall will reintroduce saltmarsh, rocky intertidal, mudflat, mangroves and terrestrial habitats to a currently degraded ecosystem. The project will also focus on restoring and managing the natural environment of Kogarah Bay.
The concept design utilises the former Kogarah City Council’s Carss Bush Park Landscape Master Plan, and shows the re-introduction of the intertidal habitat to the Carss Bush Park foreshore, while also highlighting how it could reconnect park users to Kogarah Bay.
The concept plan is on public exhibition at Council’s Service Centre located on the corner of MacMahon and Dora Streets, Hurstville until Tuesday, 4 April 2017.
To have your say on the proposed changes outlined in the concept plan, please send your submissions:
- By mail: Georges River Council’s General Manager, PO Box 205, Hurstville, NSW 1481.
- By email
Submissions will be accepted up until close of business, Tuesday 4 April 2017.
For more information, please contact Council or email.
