Supporting our local businesses

I’m excited to announce that Council’s Revitalisation Grants Program, which is part our continuing support for our local community through COVID, is now open for applications.

A total of $115,000 in grants - up to $5,000 for businesses and non-profit organisations, and up to $2,000 for community groups and individuals – is available to help rejuvenate our area post-lockdown.

All proposed projects must be undertaken by 31 March 2022. Get your applications in quick as they close on Monday 8 November.

For further details, visit Grants.

Proposed ‘No Heavy Vehicles’ route – have your say

Following concerns raised by Rose Bay residents regarding the volume of heavy vehicle traffic on Dover Road, to reduce traffic noise and improve safety we are proposing to introduce ‘No Heavy Vehicles’ signs to deter truck drivers from using the road between New South Head Road and Old South Head Roads.

I encourage you to share your feedback on the plan by emailing records@woollahra.nsw.gov.au or contacting our Traffic & Transport team on 9391 7000 before 25 October.

Caring for the community

On Sunday I joined with the Rotary Club of Kings Cross for an online fundraiser for World Mental Health Day, in lieu of its annual Walk for Mental Health event – a reminder of how important it is to look after both our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly in these difficult times.

I would also like to acknowledge the generous fundraising efforts across a broad range of community health initiatives of the Wolper Jewish Hospital in Woollahra. This year marks 60 years of providing care to the local community. Congratulations on this fantastic milestone.
