Georges River Council collects Asset and Infrastructure award

Sydney’s Georges River Council has been crowned winner of the Asset and Infrastructure Award at the 2022 Local Government Excellence Awards by Local Government Professionals Australia.

The award was presented to Council for the Lower Poulton Park Naturalisation and Carpark Construction project.

The Park, which now features a new passive recreation area and a natural vegetation zone that runs down to the Georges River, showcases existing site objects that have been repurposed to provide a natural habitat refuge that supports the native fauna population in the area and include bat caves, bee hotels, rock platforms and bird stands. In addition to this, a new car park was built to service the synthetic playing fields at the location.

Council also received the Highly Commended award within the Community Development category for the project, Community and Culture on Wheels – COVID-19 Safe Events Program.

The event program which included the Frightful 80’s Drive In, We Are Georges River Travelling Exhibition, Summer Streets and In Good Taste Programs, aimed to support the delivery of COVID-19 safe, small community events that helped to connect our community to local town centres across the Georges River area, and reduce community isolation while supporting the local economy.

Council received a total of eight nominations in several categories.
