Roads rule in Campbelltown Council’s $280m budget

Campbelltown Council’s $280 million budget for the next financial year has a strong focus on roads.

The 2022-23 budget is headlined by a capital works program of $69.5 million, which includes $25.8 million for new roads and renewal of existing roads.

Money will also be allocated towards bridges, bus shelters, cycleways, shared paths and car parks.

On top of that $7.9 million has been earmarked for the upgrade of existing play spaces, parks and reserves.

Highlights of Campbelltown’s delivery program and operational plan – the first under new mayor George Greiss – include:

  • Road renewal – $25.8 million
  • Campbelltown Billabong Parklands – $24 million
  • Raby Cricket Complex – $2.6 million
  • Campbelltown Sports and Health Centre of Excellence – $2.6 million
  • Renewal of 7 play spaces – $2 million
  • Ingleburn Reserve upgrades – $800,000
  • Community and cultural events – $745,000
  • Comprehensive Design Framework for the City Centres, including Queen Street – $650,000

Campbelltown residents can now have their say on the draft delivery program 2022-26, operational plan 2022-23 and draft long-term financial plan 2022-32.

The documents will be on public exhibition until Wednesday, May 25.

“This budget responds to the community’s aspirations expressed through our community strategic plan and will be significant in helping our city continue its recovery following the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic,” says Mayor Greiss, pictured.

“One of the key highlights of the budget that I am passionate about is the $2.4 million city amenity and appeal program which will see improvements to our public spaces that will elevate the visual appeal of our city,” he said.

“I encourage anyone with an interest in the direction of our city to view these important documents and have your say during the exhibition period,” he said.
