Council is seeking community involvement for the following projects.


Topic Council Contact & More Information

Exhibition of Draft Urban Backyard Burning of Vegetation Policy
This Council policy sets out where and how burning of vegetation from property maintenance can be done in order to maintain clean air and local amenity. We have recently undertaken a review of how the current policy is working and changes are now proposed.

Please take a look at the draft policy and provide comments by 5pm on 5 May 2017.

Renwick Community Survey

A Community Centre will be built at Renwick by UrbanGrowth NSW in the near future. 

Once built the Community Centre will become a Council owned facility and therefore require a management plan to ensure that its use and ongoing maintenance is administered correctly. We are seeking community involvement in the development of this plan and are currently inviting residents to complete a survey.

Community Strategic Plan Review

Council is undertaking a review and update of the Community Strategic Plan (CSP) known as Wingecarribee 2031+ which was adopted in 2010 following extensive community engagement.

The plan presents the community vision for our Shire in the year 2031 and identifies goals and strategies to achieve this long term vision.

We’re keen to actively involve the whole community in a review and update of the plan. In coming months there will be a range of opportunities for locals to have their say including:

  • Telephone survey with a random representative sample of residents, businesses and organisations (Micromex Research - October 2016)
  • Online survey (17 October to 20 November 2016) hosted by Micromex Research
  • Reference Panel (recruiting in December, meeting in early 2017 )
  • Public exhibition of draft revised plan and submission period (May 2017)

Station Street logo

Following extensive community consultation, in 2012 Council adopted the Bowral Parking, Traffic and Transport Strategy which outlined a major upgrade of Station Street to address the long term issue of traffic congestion within the town centre.

Council is now embarking on the upgrade of Station Street to include two lanes in each direction (between Bundaroo Street and Bowral Street), new roundabouts at Bong Bong Street and Bowral Street and improved parking facilities and access to town centre businesses.

Detailed design work will be completed during 2016 and it is anticipated that Station Street construction works will commence in 2017.

Berrima Road Deviation

Preliminary designs for the Berrima Road Deviation Project have been placed on public exhibition from 27 March to 28 April 2017.

The project will see Berrima Road diverted from the existing level crossing near the Boral Cement Works to a bridge over the train line further east. The existing T-junction intersection at Berrima Road and Taylor Avenue and the bend on the approach to the crossing from Moss Vale will also be removed from the route. These will be replaced with a B-triple truck capacity roundabout.
