Lithgow City Council resolved at the Ordinary Meeting of Council held 27 October 2014 to consult with the community on a proposal to construct an adventure playground at Endeavour Park Lithgow and to allocate funding for concept design.
After considering a number of sites, Council has selected Endeavour Park as its preferred option due to:
- Its prominent and central location.
- Proximity to child and youth populations and areas of potential population growth.
- Visibility for visitors and passing tourist traffic.
- It has sufficient available land.
- Availability of existing facilities including toilets, parking and utilities.
- The park’s sloping topography is conducive for developing an interesting playground design.
Lithgow City Council is currently developing a Village Improvement Plan for Hartley. As such, we are seeking your input, as a resident or property owner of Hartley and the surrounding area to identify how the current facilities and services can be developed to improve the quality of life for the community.
Hartley is considered to be the “eastern gateway’ of the Lithgow LGA. Situated on the Great Western Highway, the area services a number of localities and hamlets in the surrounding area including: Hartley Vale, Kanimbla, Megalong, Glen Roy, Good Forest, Old Bowenfels (River Lett Hill).
This is your chance to tell Council what you think is great about the Hartley District. Click here for survey
Please take a few minutes to complete the customer service questionnaire. Your comments will enable us to see how we're doing overall and find out how we can improve.
