MEDIA RELEASE

Hunter’s Hill Council has at its meeting tonight (Monday 17 May 2021) endorsed a draft operational plan and budget for public exhibition and progressed plans for a Sports and Community Facility at Boronia Park.

The draft 2021/22 Operational Plan and Budget, incorporating proposed fees and charges, is on public exhibition until 15 June.

The Council has adopted a long-term financial strategy seeking to drive down expenditure and diversify revenues to move from deficit budgets to balanced and surplus budgets over the next 10 years.

Over the past three years, the Council has implemented a number of ‘sustainable and thriving’ initiatives to reduce expenditure and increase revenue.

This has included provision of shared services with Lane Cove Council and diversification of revenue initiatives.

A digital asset management plan is also guiding strategies to reduce infrastructure backlog.

The Council also tonight received an update on progress of plans for a proposed Boronia Park Sports and Community Facility.

The latest concept design has taken in to account feedback from the community, sporting and school groups, and councillors.

An on-site community consultation is to be undertaken on Sunday 30 May, from 9am – 11am at Boronia Park, ahead of the lodgement of a Development Application (DA) and formal public notification period, to assist the community in making informed submissions in response to the DA.

Council’s Conservation Advisory Panel, Sustainability Advisory Committee and Bushland Management Advisory Committee will also be consulted.

The Council will consider all feedback and advice before a DA is lodged for consideration by the independent Local Planning Panel.

Information about these and other participation opportunities can be viewed at: www.huntershill.nsw.gov.au/participate.
