Fast-track projects

Council has an important role to play in responding to COVID-19 – to keep the economy moving, support our community and keep people in jobs, both now and in the months ahead. We’re responding quickly by adapting our infrastructure delivery program to ensure continued productivity, investment and community wellbeing.

In addition to the projects listed in the 2020-2021 Operational Plan, Council has been collaborating with the Urban Development Institute of Australia and the Property Council of Australia to review works programs associated with our Development Contributions Plans.

This ongoing work is helping to identify opportunities to accelerate the delivery of projects within the Development Contributions Plans while also providing new opportunities for external consultants to provide professional services to Council.

We're fast-tracking the design and construction of community infrastructure projects to allow for new jobs and construction work to continue where possible.
