Here’s what you may have missed this past quarter – Wollongong

Tonight, Wollongong City Council endorsed March’s Quarterly Review Statement, a document which outlines Council’s progress towards the goals in the Delivery Program 2022-2026 and Operational Plan 2023-2024.

This report showcases the amount of work delivered by Council across the City of Wollongong between January and March. It doesn’t just highlight the milestones of key infrastructure projects, but also captures things like library book acquisitions, community events and footpath renewals.

Housing and affordable housing was another big focus this past quarter. Now passing the 12-month mark since endorsing the Wollongong Housing Strategy, in February 2024 Council noted the progress report for the strategy which showed that Council is progressing on its affordable housing commitments.

This progress report also included Council’s considered response to the NSW Government’s housing reforms. Council provided “in principle” support for more housing around suitable stations and centres, noting that further work was required to make sure that new developments are appropriately designed and serviced to meet the needs of the community.
