Draft Operational Plan and Budget 2019-20

This consultation has concluded. The 2019-20 Operational Plan & Budget and 2019-20 Fees and Charges were adopted by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting, 25 June 2019.

Each year, Randwick City Council prepares an Operational Plan and Budget which outlines our planned activities for the coming financial year. This is your opportunity to tell us how you think Council should allocate our funds in relation to building and maintaining local parks and gardens, roads and footpaths, sports fields, or any other activity that is important to the community.

Highlights from the 2019-20 draft Budget include:

  • Planning for the extension of the Coastal Walkway and amenities at Randwick Golf Course will begin.
  • New stormwater harvesting system and irrigation for Maroubra foreshore parks will take place. This will improve the quality of the stormwater run-off.
  • We’ll be working in partnership with the state government to address community concerns around stormwater pollution at Coogee Beach.
  • We’ll invest in repairs and upgrades to our existing Gross Pollutant Traps to improve performance and cleaning.

We’ll also be focusing on how Smart Tech can help make lives easier with improvements such as:

  • Extending free public wifi to more areas
  • Installing smart parking sensors to give real-time information on street parking availability
  • Live beach cams and digital signage to give real-time beach conditions
  • Sensors on bins, BBQs and toilet blocks to alert Council to when they need servicing

The Draft Budget assumes the continuation of the Environmental Levy for a further five years and an application is currently with IPART and will be determined on 14 May 2019.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • we urgently need more parking for the belmore rd shopping strip.. the end near Allison rd is dying fast..what are you doing to alleviate this so we can compete with bondi in and eastgardens?

    Kathy urwand asked 2 months ago

    The request for additional parking for the Randwick Town Centre, particularly at the northern end of Belmore Road is noted.

    Unfortunately, there are limited opportunities to create additional on-street parking spaces in the short term.  In the coming years, we will begin investigating smart city technologies to seek to increase turnover of existing spaces and better match demand to available parking.  In the meantime, we will plan a review of our existing parking restriction to maximise the parking turnover to match the types of retail and commercial businesses. Off-street car parking is a longer term consideration that will require acquisition of land.

    The town centre is currently well serviced by public transport as an alternative to private cars.  In addition to the bus services, the light rail will begin operation in early 2020.


  • What is the logic applied for planned investment in infrastructure (roads and footpaths) and why is this not aligned with ward pop and dwelling numbers, asset conditions or known recent upgrades in infrastructure to ensure and support optimisation, return on investment and promote urban renewal and city shaping/ health & education hub concepts?

    ghhughes asked 2 months ago

    Funding for our roads and footpaths is allocated based on Asset Management Planning for each asset class that considers whole of life analysis to provide functional, safe and cost effective infrastructure.  Our programs include renewal of existing assets that are reaching end of life and the construction of new assets to improve amenity and quality of life for the community.  Our programs include funding priorities to cater for members of the community that have mobility impairment and also provide facilities to support public transport.

    The draft 2019-20 capital works budget includes urban renewal projects.  We have nominated the construction of a plaza at Meeks Street, Kingsford, the undergrounding of power and footpath renewal at The Spot, Randwick and upgrade works at Randwick Town Centre to support the transport interchange node. 

    Council is working with UNSW and Health Infrastructure to develop a Masterplan for the Health and Education precinct.  This Masterplan will inform future works and will supplement the development that is currently being undertaken by the State Government.
