Do you love being a part of our incredible community and are you eager to contribute to the way our future takes shape? A survey on open space maintenance, the replacement and renewal of pool aquatic assets, post-flood restoration projects, and infrastructure maintenance projects have all been put on the immediate agenda for Shire Presentation in the release of Council’s 2023/24 draft Operational Plan.

Wingecarribee Shire Council’s Shire Presentation Manager, Greg Bray, would like to remind the residents that your valuable insights will help guide planning for the future of our Shire, ensuring it remains the best place to live, work and thrive for years to come.

“The unwavering passion and active involvement of our community members is truly inspiring. The residents’ voices are the driving force behind our dynamic community and the catalyst for our upcoming plans,” Mr Bray said.  

Understanding the importance of community involvement WSC is seeking to actively engage residents in shaping the standard of open space maintenance and will launch a QR code survey at various parks and open space facilities. This will provide an opportunity for community members to share their thoughts and suggestions, ensuring our efforts align with their expectations.

A well-maintained aquatic facility is important in promotive an active and healthy community. Over the coming year, there will be a focus on replacing and maintaining lane ropes, service equipment and tiling and pool covers, ensuring our pools provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all patrons. Recognising the impact of increasing living costs for locals, WSC and Bluefit have proposed not to increase the joining fee to Moss Vale Aquatic Centre Health Club.

The damage caused by the 2022 flood events has been well documented and WSC are pleased to announce that State Government funding has been received and work will begin on projects to restore and recover community infrastructure that was impacted during these events.

Along with flood restoration projects, maintenance programs for safe and functioning buildings and road and storm water minor capital works projects will also be undertaken throughout the 2023/24 period.

Through operating and capital budgets WSC has allocated the necessary resources to support the vision for Shire Presentation. By prioritising our community’s needs and investing in the maintenance and improvement of infrastructure, WSC is confident that the beauty and functionality of our wonderful region will continue to grow.

Your voice matters! You’re invited to have your say on the draft 2023/24 Operational Plan currently on exhibition until 9 June.
