Following public exhibition, Blue Mountains City Council has endorsed the adoption of its draft Delivery Program and Operational Plan.

The Delivery Program and Operational Plan presents the fourth year of Council’s planned activities, budget and fees and charges for 2020-2021, in the context of the four-year Delivery Program 2017-2021.

Mayor Cr Mark Greenhill said: “Council will complete and commence many major projects in the coming year, as well as deliver an extensive range of services to the 27 towns and villages across the City of the Blue Mountains.”

Projects include:·

  • Katoomba Outdoor Pool Upgrade – including a new concourse for the 50m outdoor pool, landscaping and associated works.
  • Springwood Town Centre Masterplan – including elements of the Springwood Town Centre Public Domain Plan that builds on existing street and landscape features to provide a more attractive public space.
  • Springwood Library Upgrade – redevelopment of the public area so that it’s a larger, contemporary, light-filled space.
  • Lawson Parklands – construction of accessible pathways, dog off leash area, seating and associated landscaping works.
