COUNCIL BRIEFS: Update of Yass Park and Ride facility

Update of Yass Park and Ride facility

Following completion of the Park & Ride Options Study, Council has successfully received a $330,000 grant from Transport for NSW to construct the park and ride bus facility in Lead Street Yass.

In preparation to undertake this project a review of the drainage infrastructure adjacent to the site indicates that an open drain is currently unstable and council agreed this issue needed to be addressed concurrently with the park and ride facility construction.

The council also recommended that the Ford Street (Yass River to Grampian St) stormwater drainage project be deferred and considered as part of the draft 2015/16 Operational Plan.

Water and Sewage

Council’s current strategic business plan for water supply and sewerage 2014 was adopted by council on the November 26 meeting.

It has been revised to incorporate Council’s current financial position and reflect council and community aspirations for water and sewerage infrastructure.

The plan identifies that the required infrastructure and services can be provided sustainably and identifies when specific projects are planned to be completed. It also shows a reduction in current water rates once Council’s current debt for the Yass Dam project is reduced, and a small increase in sewerage rates to cover the costs of the various new and upgraded infrastructure required to be provided.

Councillor Frost said that he does not want the plan to sit on the table for any longer.

“We want to keep it alive and get it going,” Cr Frost said.

Councillor Needham expressed his concerns over how it would affect the Greenfield Development if the developer wanted to put in a new subdivision.

Chris Berry assured councillors that there are systems in place to cater for these strategic plans.
