Facilities & Venues

As of Tuesday, 24 March 2020, Council’s aquatic and leisure centres and community centres are closed to public access. Our libraries will offer some services online where possible but are not open to the public.

Council is mindful of growing community concern about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and takes these concerns seriously. The safety of our residents and staff is our first and foremost priority.

At all times, we are acting on current advice and this is subject to change at short notice following direction from NSW Health and the federal government. That advice is now to close all non-essential operations.

Our Administration Building is open to the public but wherever possible, please email or call us with your enquiry. We’re also relocating our workforce to be based from home, wherever possible.

We have plans in place to maintain our essential services to you. We know this is a difficult time for everyone and encourage you to look out for each other, check in on your vulnerable family and neighbours, and if in doubt, call us if you have a question about Council’s services during this time.

Our customer service teams are here for your call and there’s also a number of services available to you online.
