Take part in the Sport & Recreation Community Survey

Cowra Council is developing a 10-year strategic vision for sport and recreation in the Cowra Shire. This will build on previous plans and recognises the achievements of the last 20 years.

The plan will guide sustainable investment in facilities, identify priorities and provide a strategic framework for the planning and management of sport and recreation.

It is important to Council that the new plan is based on a strong understanding of community needs and priorities for the future provision of sport and recreation in Cowra.

Otium Planning Group is working with council to ensure that community and stakeholder groups get involved and help define the vision for the next 10 years.

Residents are invited to take part in the survey which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey will close Friday 4 December 2020. To complete the survey click here.

Target Carpark Drainage Works

As work progresses towards the final stage, from Tuesday 24 November to Friday 27 November, there will be no access to the carpark from Brisbane Street and the top section of the Target carpark will be off limits (see red shaded area).
From Thursday 3 December to Tuesday 8 December, a hotmix contractor is scheduled to commence paving works during which time the entire car park will be off limits with sections of the carpark slowly re-opening again as sections of the paving are completed.
Following the paving, there will be minor works relating to lighting and landscaping that will have minimal effect to the parking. Council hope to have this project completed before Christmas (weather permitting).
Council thank you for your patience during this time and apologise for the inconvenience. For more information, please contact Infrastructure and Operations on 6340 2070.
