20/08/2020

Georges River Council has teamed  with the Federal and State government to co-fund installation of CCTV cameras at the Chivers Hill shops in Lugarno in order to increase the sense of safety for the local community.

Four community safety cameras have been installed, with Council contributing $13,430. 

Federal Member for Banks, David Coleman MP committed $12,000 on behalf of the Federal Government and NSW Member for Oatley, Mark Coure MP contributed an additional $12,000.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene said that ensuring local residents and business owners felt safe was a priority.

“We want to make improvements that add to our community’s sense of safety and security, and provide the infrastructure and services that enable this,” said Mayor Greene.

In welcoming the funding commitment, Mr Coleman said that the Government had listened to the concerns of local residents and is acting to address safety issues in Lugarno. 

“The installation of these cameras will help to maintain the safety of Chivers Hill shops and give peace of mind to local residents and business owners,” said Mr Coleman.

Mr Coure said that this project will support local residents and boost safety in the area.

“Residents from Lugarno and surrounding suburbs have often contacted me regarding the need to improve safety around the local area. I personally wrote to the Premier requesting funding to install CCTV at Chivers Hill shops,” Mr Coure said.

“I am proud to be delivering for my local community and working to increase safety and security in the area.”
This project was funded by Georges River Council, the NSW Government Premier’s Grant and the Australian Government under the Community Development Grants Programme.
