Open Projects

Proposed Special Rate Variation

In order to deliver the services, projects, facilities and outdoor spaces that our community have told us they want, Council needs to be in a stronger financial position that we are in now. To achieve this, we are considering applying to the Independent Pricing & Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) for a Special Rate Variation (SRV) so that we can increase rates above the rate peg. An SRV would give Council the financial flexibility to respond to unforeseen events such as natural disasters, as well as the funds to deliver a range of priority projects that the community has told us it wants across areas including heritage protection, recreation, trees, digital service improvements, walking and cycling infrastructure and climate change adaptation.

Visit our Your Say page to read about the proposed SRV options, the priority projects that would be funded with an SRV, and the many ways you can have your say before Sunday 9 October.

Lyne Park Playground Renewal

Lyne Park Playground in Rose Bay is one of our LGA’s most well-loved children’s play spaces for both local residents and visitors, given its prominent position on Sydney Harbour and proximity to nearby recreational and social activities. Council is now planning to make it even better, by transforming underused play items and increasing the playground's footprint to provide inclusive, imaginative and flexible recreational experiences for all age groups and abilities. Tell us what you think of our new design via a short survey before Friday 28 October.

Local heritage listing of Ausgrid electricity substations

We invite your comments on a planning proposal to list 18 Ausgrid electricity sub-stations as local heritage items until Friday 11 November. Ranging from 1920s art nouveau structures to modern kiosk-style substations, a detailed description of the heritage significance of each sub-station has been prepared in Draft Heritage Inventory Sheets and the historical context of the sub-stations can be read about in the Draft Heritage Review - Ausgrid Section 170 Register.

Local Heritage Listing of 'The Corner House' at 364 Edgecliff Road, Edgecliff

Council is proposing to list the two-storey dwelling at 364 Edgecliff Road as a local heritage item. 'The Corner House' possesses strong historical, aesthetic and social significance, and is an excellent example of Arts & Crafts architecture from the interwar period. We invite your comments on the planning proposal until Friday 14 October.
