About the Project

The Camden Local Government Area (LGA) continues to be one of the fastest growing in the State with approximately 110 new residents moving into the community every week. The Camden LGA’s population is forecast to increase from 60,000 to 275,000 over the next 30 years. Council’s focus is on the continued delivery of quality services to the community. However, as the population grows, staffing rates to deliver those services must grow with it.

Council’s current administration buildings at Narellan and Camden are nearing capacity and operating two administration buildings 5km apart is inefficient. In 2008, Council engaged independent experts to assist with the selection of the most appropriate site to accommodate the new Administration Building.

In May 2012, Council resolved to endorse and accept the recommendation of Oran Park as the site for the new development. Between May and December 2012, Council purchased the land in Oran Park, and Architects were engaged to develop a design. Tenders for construction were received in March 2015, and the successful contractor Adco Constructions appointed in April 2015.

Council’s new Central Administration Building will include accommodation for staff, an open plan customer service centre with meeting booths/kiosks, multipurpose rooms for Council Meetings and events and public amenities.

  • It is an exciting new development for the Camden LGA, with the new building being constructed in the heart of the LGA
  • The building will allow for Council’s administration staff to be in one location (currently spread across six locations) adding to convenience for customers
  • The new facilities will allow Council to service the needs of the growing LGA more effectively and efficiently
  • Council is committed to providing the best services, facilities and outcomes for the community through new facilities such as the new Administration Building

The office administration building will be bound by Charker Street to the South, Central Avenue to the West and Holstein Street to the East, once these roads have been constructed. This development will also feature 250 parking spaces via a graded and decked car park immediately adjacent to the centre.
