Kogarah Council - Community Development

The main objective of the Council is to provide for the people of Kogarah, a municipality offering a quality of life and environment to meet their needs and expectations at the least possible cost.The Council has instigated an Access Committee which examines issues and particular needs of people with disabilities. These findings will be acted upon by Council, with improvements such as more ramps, provision of hearing assistance devices, etc being provided throughout the municipality. Other objectives include to provide a range of passive and active recreational facilities equitably allocated and appropriately located to service the expectations of the residents, to provide library facilities which generally cater for the educational, recreational and informational needs of the community, to foster and encourage a community sense of 'people helping people' at the same time supporting the coordination, financing and planning of the delivery of services to meet the needs of all sections of the community. The Community Services section of the council does not run activities or programs directly, but can give information to all residents with disabilities about available services and organisations within the council area.
