2016/17 Capital Works Projects Update

Due to the unforeseen impact of the storm events during spring, many of our scheduled capital works projects have been delayed or deferred while we undertake remediation and repair work.

A review of the capital works program has been undertaken to assess which projects Council has the capacity to deliver, are already underway and which are deemed critical, including some infrastructure projects.

At the 22 November 2016 Council meeting, a revised 2016/17 Capital Works Program budget was endorsed by Council Members.
