Our priority in all things remains the safety and well-being of our staff and community.

Pandemic Response Team

Council has established a Pandemic Response Team to oversee how the COVID-19 response is organised.

There is a large number of our residents now working from home who are unfamiliar with the level of daytime noise such as construction, lawn mowing etc. We are receiving a significant amount of complaints. There are legislation and controls in place to allow this noise, which limits councils ability to respond to the complaints. Please consider this before making a call or emailing our Customer Service staff.
