Welcome to Georges River Council

Welcome to the New Year, and thank you to everyone who came along to enjoy the numerous events Council staff organised and staged over the festive season. Collectively, Magic of Christmas, Australia Day and Lunar New Year attracted approximately 73,000 people, which is just incredible. Your attendance at these major events helps make them all the more lively and enjoyable, and we thank you for your enthusiastic support. Read on for a more comprehensive wrap-up of each of these events.

We have recently conducted 10 workshops throughout the local government area seeking feedback from community members to help us develop our Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS). The LSPS will outline the 20-year vision for land use, the special characteristics that contribute to local identity, and how growth and change will be managed into the future.

Our Artist in Residence Program continues to showcase some amazing talents. The program provides artists an opportunity to develop their artistic skills during their residency at Carss Park Artist’s Cottage. Each artist brings something unique to the program, and I look forward to seeing what they achieve and create during their residency.

The artists will have the opportunity to work with Council to develop cultural programs for the benefit of the Georges River Council community as well as engage with local residents. Keep an eye out for opportunities to see their work or get involved in workshops – there will be a range of artistic disciplines covered over the term of the program.
