2020 has been a year of challenges, and we understand that the residents of Hunters Hill will be looking forward to celebrating the end of the year.

Council is continually working with the NSW Police to ensure the safety of our community, and would like to provide our residents with direction and information on New Year’s Eve in 2020 following the NSW Government announcement to continue with the cancelled City of Sydney fireworks display on the Sydney Harbour Bridge at midnight.


What does this mean for Hunters Hill residents and businesses?

Clarkes Point and the Woolwich Peninsula are traditionally popular vantage points for people looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

We have been advised that there will be only one display at midnight on the Harbour Bridge, with no barge displays proposed west of the bridge.

Council will be supporting the NSW Police to manage the risk of Public Health Order breaches and safety of our residents, and minimise the cost impacts of traffic.

 

The details

  • From 11am on 31 December 2020 until 2am 1 January 2021, NSW Police will establish a checkpoint at the corner of Reiby and Church St Hunters Hill.
  • Only people residing on the peninsula, east of Church Street overpass and possessing proof of residency will be permitted to enter.
  • There will be no deliveries, or other transport (including UBER’s and buses) allowed past the checkpoint. A resident in a sign written taxi with proof of residence will be permitted to enter.
  • Clearways will be enacted from 30 December 2020 – 1 January 2021.
  • Clarkes Point Reserve carpark will be closed from 8am 30 December 2020 – 1 January 2021.
  • Should you have guests visiting your home during the period, you will be required to collect them from the checkpoint. No vehicles (other than residents) will be permitted to enter.

This is subject to any changes by the NSW Government to the Public Health Orders.
