Increased maintenance of streets, parks and reserves and delivery of footpath and cycleway improvements are among highlights in the latest progress report for Hunter’s Hill Council’s Delivery Program and Operational Plan.

An update on the 2021-22 program and plan, covering the quarter from January to March 2022, was received at last night’s (Tuesday 19 April, 2022) Council meeting.

Report highlights included increased maintenance of parks and reserves, in particular in response to extreme wet weather.

Conditions and weather patterns would continue to be monitored to ensure areas were maintained in line with expected service standards, the report said.

An annual footpath renewal and upgrade program is near complete, with works on one remaining street due for completion this month (April).

Works identified in a Hunters Hill Bike Plan have been carried out, with symbols and line markings completed on all routes.

Work to support maintenance of village centres is on track, with rubbish collection, trip point repairs, weed and graffiti control regularly carried out to help keep these public places clean and vibrant.

Projects to foster the protection and enhancement of the natural environment were also highlighted in the report.

It showed that 80 active Bushcare volunteers worked across 11 sites, collectively contributing 182 hours of their time to local environmental projects.

In the area of sustainability, Council’s partnership with collection service RecycleSmart resulted in 177 collections from residents’ homes, comprising 441 bags weighing a total 1235 kilograms and including clothing, soft plastics and e-waste.

The quarterly report highlights progress towards the achievement of Council’s objectives and actions – the projects, programs and services that Council is delivering to the community.
