Towards 2042 Community Consultation: The Towards 2042 community consultation aims to gather information about what is important to you now and in the future. During this time we want to hear your long term goals for the community as well as what is great or needs improving today. This information then becomes the basis of our Community Strategic Plan which the new Council will use to inform their Delivery Program for the next three years. Have your say online through bit.ly/2042Survey before August 13 or pick up a hard copy from any of our offices and return by July 31.
Bungendore Car Park: Work has now begun on the Bungendore off-street car park. Businesses in the Bendigo Bank building remain open while the car park to the rear of 33 Ellendon Street is closed off. This will be for a few weeks as drainage works are established through the site. These businesses are easily accessible by pedestrian walkways while this work is underway. This project will provide 50 parking spaces, including three disabled parking spaces and two electric vehicle charging stations and is expected to be completed by December, weather permitting. Once completed the car park may be used to host markets as a multipurpose community space. Find out more at qprc.nsw.gov.au/bungendore-car-park
