New Community Facilities to be delivered as part of Wollondilly’s draft Capital Works Program
Posted on: 17.06.2022
Council’s draft Delivery Program, Operational Plan and Capital Works Program (2026-2027) will be considered at this month’s Council meeting, with towns right across the Shire soon to benefit from new facilities.
While roads are the immediate top priority for Wollondilly, the community has also expressed a desire for Council to invest in major infrastructure, including new community and sporting facilities.
Council is investing a total of $45.8M in capital works across the Shire for the next financial year, with a range of exciting projects to support the health and wellbeing of the communities right across the Shire.
Some of the highlights, in addition to road improvements, will include:
- The Old Menangle School site playground and landscaping, construction and building design
- Dudley Chesham all abilities playground and multipurpose building design at The Oaks
- Completion of the Picton to Tahmoor Shared Cycleway
- Commencement of the Wollondilly Performing Arts Centre
- An upgrade of the Birrahlee Park Playground at Yanderra
- Botanic Gardens upgrades, including accessible amenities, stage, pathways and an inclusive play space
- Netball courts and floodlighting at Appin Sportsground
- Numerous footpath projects including Avon Dam Road and Silverdale Road, as well as kerb & gutter
Mayor Matt Gould said, “While improving our roads is clearly the top priority for our community, followed by sustainable management of growth and development, our community also wants to see investment in major infrastructure including new community and sporting facilities.”
“We have taken on board feedback received from our residents during the recent public exhibition period to ensure that their priorities for the future have been adequately captured, and we look forward to see work happening on the ground in the near future.”
“We live in an amazing Shire and our vision is to keep what makes it so special whilst making it an even better place for everyone,” he said.
