Upgrades to buildings and facilities

We aim to be a leader in design excellence when we improve existing buildings and facilities across our local area.

While preserving the historic significance of these buildings, among the improvements we introduce sustainable features to boost our green and design excellence credentials.

Before we start work to improve our buildings and facilities, we ask for your feedback about the plans and designs on our Sydney Your Say website.
