MEDIA RELEASE

An expanded community grants program, an initiative to help drivers find mobility parking spaces and measures to support community and verge gardens were endorsed at a Hunter’s Hill Council meeting on Monday night (20 June 2022).

Community grants will be offered under a $20,000 program in 2022-23, boosting financial support for community groups and not-for-profit organisations that provide innovative and inclusive programs, events and projects in the local government area.

A new parking initiative offering real-time data on the location of mobility parking spaces will be introduced in Hunters Hill through the State Government’s Park’n Pay app.

Sensors installed in mobility parking spaces will help app users locate available spots.

A policy and guidelines to support planting of community and verge gardens was also adopted on Monday night in response to increasing public interest to install these gardens on Council and Crown Land, or on nature strips and road verges.

Other matters resolved at Monday’s meeting included:

  • Adoption of Council’s suite of draft business plan documents, including a 10-year Community Plan, 4-year Delivery Program and annual Operational Plan.
  • The removal and replacement, with another recommended species, of a Ficus macrocarpa var. ‘hillii’ tree in High Street, near Pittwater Road, which has roots causing significant damage to both Council infrastructure and private property. This follows community consultation and two independent arborists reports. A second street tree will be retained.
