Uriarra Road water main: The water main works are on track for completion towards the end of April and then, weather depending, the works crew will be on site to undertake road works and re-seal the road.

Thanks to residents for their patience as we look forward to completing the job and achieving a quality finished product.

Strategic directions: A discussion paper on council’s strategic directions is on exhibition at http://yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au.

We are seeking feedback on the directions and actions to guide the 2017-18 operational plan that is to be adopted before the new council is elected in September 2017. Consultation closes 21 April.
