Council improves DA process

Development Application

Lodging a Development Application should now be significantly easier with Council recently completing an internal review of its Planning, Development and Compliance department.

The department was examined as part of Council's Service Review programme - an ongoing operation-wide review process which aims to identify areas where Council can improve efficiency and better serve to the community.

Help tell the tales of Broken Hill

Walk tour

If you have a passion for your home town and enjoy telling a tale or two, then the Heritage Walk Tour Group would love to hear from you.

The volunteer group is currently looking to recruit more guides to escort groups of tourists through the city and chat with them about Broken Hill's many points of interest.

Since reforming in April 2017, the group has guided almost 1000 people through the city, and generated a very positive response.

Telstra Tech Savvy - iPad

Tablets are a revolutionary way of accessing the internet, playing games and communicating. They can do a lot of the things your computer can do, and they can be used pretty much anywhere.

This workshop is for people who have never used a tablet but are interested in finding out what they can do. You don’t need to have PC or mobile smartphone experience.

Road upgrades set to start

Road resealing will begin around the city next week, and Council is encouraging motorists to be patient while the work is carried out.
The reseal program is expected to run from January 30 to mid-March (weather permitting), and will see numerous roads patched and resurfaced across Broken Hill.
Council's Supervisor Roads, Paul Richards, thanked the community in advance for their patience and care while the works are completed.

Council to seek compensation for Civic Centre

Council will seek compensation over the Civic Centre project.

The Civic Centre building will be unavailable for public access on Australia Day with a new report finding that the facility still requires significant work.

With Council currently in dispute with the project's former builder and contractor, it recently engaged Five G Management Director and former Woolworth's National Construction Operations Manager, Ian Giblett, to inspect the facility.

Council's General Manager, James Roncon, said it was essential that Council seek expert advice regarding the refurbishment.
