The two key documents that guide Wollongong City Council’s work for the next 12 months were adopted at Council tonight, Monday 29 June 2020.

The Operational Plan and Delivery Program, along with the Revenue Policy, Fees and Charges, and Infrastructure Delivery Program, set out what projects, initiatives and services we’re committed to delivering, and how they will be paid for.

The $800M infrastructure delivery program for the next four years includes additional investment in new and ongoing improvements to shared pathways, as well as recreational improvements like a BMX pump track, a criterion track and more accessible amenities. Projects targeted in the plans include additional lengths of the Grand Pacific Walk, new playgrounds like the one identified in the Cringila Hills Masterplan, and community facilities like Warrawong Community Centre and Library.

Work on some additional projects, including cycleways, playgrounds and accessible amenities, will also be fast-tracked after Council received $3.7M grant funding boosts from the State and Federal Governments.
