Capital Works Program - Community Submissions

Community groups are able to make submissions for projects which may be considered for inclusion in the Capital Works Program.

Capital Works provide/upgrade Council owned infrastructure and may include new projects such as leisure and recreation facilities, road, paths, drains, parks, buildings, car parks and community facilities.

In the first instance groups wishing to pursue, or advocate for, projects through the Capital Works Program, should discuss the issue with the Department that would be managing the application.

Groups or individuals wishing to make requests for new or upgrade works can now do so throughout the year. Submissions can be made at any time leading up to Business Case preparation in September/October each year.

The relevant Program Coordinator can give an early assessment in relation to the current program of works and inform the applicant accordingly (e.g. request by clubs for sporting pavilion extensions would be directed to, and assessed by, the Manager - Youth, Leisure & Cultural Services).

For more information, please contact Council on 9298 8000 or email
