COVID-19 UPDATE – Tuesday, 3 August 2021

On 28 July, the NSW Premier announced an extension of the current lockdown to 28 August 2021. Council is endeavouring to provide as many services in the field as possible, where they are in line with the Public Health Orders. Consequently, any current inspections or assessments undertaken by our Council Officers must be contactless. We kindly request that you do not approach any officers while they are undertaking their duties. If approached, officers have been directed to cease the activity. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation while we work to maintain our field services to you.
Our facilities remain closed. This includes Hornsby Shire Libraries, Community Centres, Thornleigh Brickpit, Hornsby Shire Aquatic & Leisure Centres, Thornleigh Community Recycling Centre and our Customer Service Centres.
These measures are to keep our community and our staff safe during this current outbreak but we are still here for you. Please be assured that we will respond to emergency callouts. If you have any requirements of Council, please contact Customer Service on 9847 6666 and online as usual and we will respond during normal business hours.
Under these current restrictions, where we cannot respond face-face, we will endeavour to find a way to assist in a COVID-safe way wherever possible. Many of our services are available online, including lodgement of Development Applications, and our Duty Planning Officer is available for enquiries on 9847 6760 (8.30am-5pm).
Further information on the current restrictions is available on the NSW Government website.
We are constantly monitoring this evolving situation and will keep you updated here and on Facebook with any changes.
