New larger library in the Western part of our local government area

Our libraries provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for all people to gather, connect, share and learn. We will build a new, state-of-the-art library to support residents in the western and southern Georges River area. More information can be found in Libraries 2030.

New civic precinct

The Hurstville Civic Precinct, which is bound by Queens Road, Park Road, McMahon Street and Barrett Road, has been identified as a strategic site for new community facilities, public open spaces, car parking, and residential and commercial office space. More information can be found in the Hurstville Civic Precinct Master Plan.

New active recreation such as skate parks and mountain bike tracks

In future development of the Olds Park Hub, improvements to the skate park are prioritised. More information can be found in the Open Space, Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy 2019 – 2036.

Major sporting precinct / hub

Netstrata Jubilee Stadium and adjacent Kogarah Park is a multipurpose stadium used for rugby league and football at the highest levels and also hosts regional and community-based sports. A sports and entertainment precinct could be a meeting and celebration space for the local community and visitors. More information can be found in Georges River 2050 Leading for Change and Kogarah Collaboration Area Strategy.

New community centre in Riverwood

The provision of additional community space is required in the Riverwood area. More information can be found in the Open Space, Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy 2019 – 2036.

Transforming our branch libraries into flexible community hubs

Our libraries provide welcoming, inclusive spaces that inspire and engage our community. The trend is for smaller libraries to be flexible and adaptable spaces for a variety of community activities with self-service points, click and collect, elibrary and outreach programs and events, creating a ‘community hub’ of local activity. More information can be found in Libraries 2030 and Georges River 2050 Leading for Change.

Establishing a technology hub for youth and vulnerable communities

The technology hub for youth and vulnerable communities would provide young people access to contemporary and relevant technology-based resources that will address a self-learning and availability gap in a tailored environment. This level of service is not available elsewhere in the Georges River area and existing services are restricted. More information can be found in the Open Space, Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy 2019 – 2036.

Community infrastructure required to cater for increased population growth/development

As we grow in population size, the provision of enabling infrastructure to meet the increased demands will become even more important for our residents and businesses. This includes community facilities, schools, as well as energy and water. More information can be found in the Georges River LSPS 2040 and Local Strategic Planning Statement 2040 – Implementation Plan.

Smart places in key locations which builds an Internet of Things

Smart places use embedded technology to capture information on the asset or local environment. The data is analysed to make better, evidence-based decisions about improving the productivity, liveability and resilience of cities suburbs and communities. More information can be found in Georges River Council Our Smart Places Roadmap.
