Mobile CCTV will be installed at key locations in Hunters Hill at peak usage times to promote community safety.

Hunter’s Hill Council resolved tonight (26 October, 2020) to install a CCTV solution at Woolwich Baths during the summer months.

The technology would be relocated to key locations at other times of the year.

The Council will also work with Hunters Hill Sailing Club to determine the most appropriate form of surveillance for monitoring the clubhouse, dock, slipway and adjoining park, with the club funding installation of CCTV at that site.

A report to the Council said that during warmer weather, usage of Woolwich Baths increased.

While most visitors did the right thing and were considerate of nearby residents, some antisocial behaviour had occurred.

Residents and visitors were encouraged to report any incidents of antisocial behaviour to the Police.

Council rangers regularly patrolled the baths, with no issues evident during these checks.

The municipality is also set to receive an additional boost for local infrastructure through the Federal Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Federal Member for North Sydney, the Honourable Trent Zimmerman, has advised that the Council will receive $455,733.

Councillors voted to send a letter of thanks to Mr Zimmerman.

An update on Council’s 2020-21 Delivery Program was also reported to tonight’s meeting.

It showed that even with COVID restrictions in place, the Council’s workforce adapted and continued to support the local community.

Highlight’s included developing a draft Community Infrastructure Plan, which is on public exhibition until 2 November, to support the Council’s long-term financial sustainability and shape the facilities and services offered to the community.

Environmental projects involved planting thousands of native plants at key sites in the local government area and weeding more than 1.8 hectares along the Parramatta River.

Transport projects focused on wharves, main roads and bike networks, while planning projects looked at reducing development application processing times and strategies and plans for local housing and key precincts such as Gladesville.

Providing residents access to Lane Cove Council library services and planning new programs for the first ever library and community space in Hunters Hill, The YARN, was also completed in preparation for public programs to commence from November.
