Shire $76M capital works program ranges from Entertainment Centre major refurb to toilet upgrades

$76M capital works program for shire

Sutherland Shire Council proposes to spend $76 million on infrastructure works in 2021-22.

Projects range from the $41.2 million Sutherland Entertainment Centre redevelopment to an upgrade of toilets at Shelly Beach and Oak Park.

The proposed works program is in a draft budget presented by staff to last week's council meeting, but still requires approval before being placed on public exhibition for feedback before it is confirmed.

An extraordinary meeting of council is due to be held next week after a budget snag.
