Randwick Council will deliver a significant $66M capital works program in the coming 12 months including road and footpath upgrades, park and sports field improvements and improved arts and cultural centres.

Councillors unanimously adopted the 2022-23 Operational Plan, Budget and four-year delivery program at their ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday 28 June 2022.

“I am proud to say we’ve budgeted for a significant capital works program to ensure we deliver quality services and facilities for our community.

“I am particularly pleased that we’ll complete work on the Heffron Centre – a new community sporting facility and undertake improvements to the Heffron Netball Centre to create all-weather courts and seating,” Mayor Parker said.

The budget and operational plans were developed through consultation with the community and formally exhibited from 28 April to 28 May 2022 for comment. Thirty-four (34) submissions were received and these have been incorporated into the plans where possible.

Some of the many activities planned for 2022-23 are detailed below:

Council consulted with more than 14,000 residents over the past three years who contributed their thoughts and feedback in a variety of ways to set the direction for Council over the next four years.
