Camden Council will soon have an updated operational home, with its depot set for a $9 million redevelopment.
The redevelopment to Council’s operational and waste services are located at Millwood Avenue, Narellan, and has been planned to support the community’s growth.
The proposed scope of works for the redevelopment include:
- New Depot Administration Building and Administration car park;
- New weighbridge & truck wash;
- Landscaping to the southern boundary;
- Relocation of the existing management office and repurpose as meeting rooms;
- Install Poly Tunnels/containers;
- Formalise waste truck hardstand;
- Rectification to site drainage;
- Electrical power upgrade;
- New entrance for heavy vehicles;
- High Bay workshop and fit-out;
- Extra 41 space staff car park;
- Signs building;
- Reconfiguration of the Stores building;
- Installation of retaining walls; and
- Community Recycling Centre.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the redevelopment was important to the future of the Camden area.
“It is clear that, as the Camden area grows, we must also grow to continue servicing our residents,” Cr Fedeli said.
“Council’s depot redevelopment will ensure we continue to provide high service levels to both existing and newly developed areas across the Camden area.
“It is equally important for Council to continue investing in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Council will apply for a Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Low-Cost Loan totalling $8.8 million to fund the project, with the remaining $200,000 received from grant funding. This program provides Council with a 50 per cent rebate on the interest payable on the loan, which will result in an interest saving of $367,000.
