Building & Development

Hurstville City Council makes decisions based on its Policies and Codes.

Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, Council is only required to place Open Access Policies on its website as technology and resources allow. Council has a program in place to review outdated, superseded by legislation and other irrelevant documents for deletion before more relevant Policies which have an affect on the community are transferred for uploading to the Council’s website. Although the priority is high, it is subject to resources given Council’s many other competing demands and priorities. The main policies and codes are listed here on the website and all other policies are available for viewing by the public if requested. For more information, please contact Council on 9330 6222.
