Wollongong City Council (WCC) is a major purchaser of goods and services within the Wollongong economy.
Wollongong City Council is responsible for building, operating and managing over $5 billion worth of infrastructure assets that support a variety of services for our community.
Infrastructure assets managed by Council include:
- Footpaths and cycleways
- Local roads and car parks
- Public swimming pools
- Stormwater pipes and drains
- Libraries and other community buildings
A key deliverable from Council's annual planning cycle is the development of the 4-year Infrastructure Delivery Program. Through this process, Council reviews the needs of our community and the services the Council provides, then prioritises the projects that can be delivered to help facilitate these services based on the available resources. The 2022-23 - 2025-26 Infrastructure Delivery Program identifies investments in approximately 700 projects, all of which contribute to building an extraordinary Wollongong!
Key infrastructure investment priorities include:
- Extending Council's shared path and footpath network and maintaining Council's existing shared path
and footpath network.
- Construction of new infrastructure to reduce flood risk and investment in the maintenance of Council's
existing stormwater network.
- The delivery of new community infrastructure identified in the Council's supporting documents, including
the new Warrawong Community Centre and Library and Helensburgh Community Centre and Library.
- Design and construct significant infrastructure to support continued growth in the West Dapto Urban Release Area.
- The renewal and upgrade of the Council's treated water pools
Council continues to benefit from an injection of funds provided by the NSW State and the Australian governments, who have invested in local infrastructure in response to the challenges of the past 2 years. This funding assists in accelerating the delivery of priority projects across the city. Between 2020 and 2024, our Infrastructure Delivery Program will be worth $800m.
Our ongoing projects are generally long-term activities or projects made up of multiple stages or parts. Many of these projects are supported by a master plan or strategy.
This presents significant opportunities for local businesses to work with Council. WCC has also updated their procurement policy to give more weight to local businesses in tenders and formal quotations.
