Five finalists in NSW Local Government Excellence Awards


Georges River Council is proud to announce that it has five finalists in this year’s NSW Local Government Excellence Awards.

These finalists fall into a range of categories that demonstrate Council’s dedication to developing functional and accessible green public spaces, improving the natural environment and providing first-class community facilities.

Georges River Council Mayor Kevin Greene praised staff members who have been working to achieve positive outcomes for the local community.

“The quality of these projects demonstrates the commitment of Council staff to deliver excellent results in their chosen field,” said Mayor Greene.

“The scope of Council’s work is often underestimated by those in our community, and these awards shine a light on just some of the incredible projects I continue to be impressed by and proud to promote.

“‘The Green' pop-up park and the Smart Collaboration - ChillOUT Hubs projects are both finalists in the category Community Partnerships and Collaboration for populations between 60,000 to 200,000.

“The world-class Norm O’Neill Cricket Training Facility is a finalist in the projects over $1.5 million category and the Charles Pirie Inclusive Sports Amenities is a finalist in the the projects under $1.5m category.

“Carss Park Foreshore Naturalisation Project is a finalist in the Environmental Leadership and Sustainability Category, and features ongoing research and development into seawall construction, with the intention of increasing foreshore habitat through its innovative design. 

“Recent works at that location will encourage and protect estuarine habitat communities, beautify the area and enhance recreational opportunities for Georges River residents.

“I think our staff have a lot to be proud of, and I wish them all the best of luck,” added Mayor Greene.

The winners will be announced online during a series of live events being held from 7-16 July.
