One of the large work’s projects undertaken by Council is the building of new community houses. Council is an approved contractor to the State Government for the building of these houses. The new subdivisions in the community have alleviated some of the overcrowding that has been an issue on the Island for many years. The Council is currently lobbying the Commonwealth Government to provide more funds for additional housing projects post 30 June 2018.
Roads and Foreshore
Council is currently focusing on enhancing the liveability of the community and had sought grants monies to upgrade the seawalls and foreshore area. There has been specific road project to improve accessibility in the wet season and reduce road flooding. At all times the community should take care and drive to the conditions of the road.
