Long-term planning the key to Cowra Council’s future

Council's Integrated Delivery Program 2013–2017 and Operational Plan 2015–2016 are currently on public display for consideration and comment from Cowra ratepayers. Click here to download the document. Closes on Friday, June 12th.

Long-term financial and operational planning over recent years has left Cowra Council in good stead for the NSW Government's current "Fit For The Future" program.

This long-term planning includes our draft Integrated Delivery Program 2013-2017 and Operational Plan 2015-2016 which are currently on public display for consideration and comment from Cowra ratepayers, General Manager, Paul Devery said in a recent report to Council.

Major projects proposed include undertaking redesign and rehabilitation of the Kendal Street footpath as part of the CBD redevelopment; continuing investigations into the proposed heavy vehicle bypass; and $3 million on rural road maintenance and construction works.

Mr Devery said that the forward planning and financial discipline of these plans was now serving Council well in the Fit for the Future program that is looking at proposed amalgamations of Councils throughout NSW.

New Community Recycling Centre for Cowra

Cowra residents will soon be able to waste less and recycle more after a $75,000 grant to create a new recycling facility in the Shire.

Cowra's Material Recycling Facility (MRF) on Glen Logan Road is the site for a new Community Recycling Centre. The new Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at the MRF will collect household problem wastes including batteries, fluorescent lamps, paints, smoke detectors, gas cylinders and oils.

The new centre will encourage ratepayers and residents to drop-off materials that up to now have either been impossible or difficult to recycle at the MRF.
