Better Buildings Strategy

Thankyou to everyone who made a submission. As there were no substantial changes resulting from the public exhibition process, the Better Buildings Strategy was adopted on 30 September 2018.

The Strategy applies to all Council buildings including:

  • community halls
  • childcare facilities
  • aged and disability services
  • libraries and cultural buildings
  • multi-purpose buildings
  • operational buildings and strategic investment assets
  • sporting and aquatic centres
  • public amenities
  • sporting club amenities
