Welcome to

Burwood Council

Identified as a major centre by the NSW Government, Burwood is set to grow significantly in the next 25 years, taking advantage of the area’s strong local economy and excellent transport infrastructure.

Council is committed not only to maximising the area’s growth, but to ensuring that Burwood remains an exciting and vibrant place to live, work and visit.

We have already completed an extensive program of public works, including improvements to Burwood Park, the Avenue of Nations and surrounding street scapes.

Funding our Future

Over the past few years, Council has been listening to the community in order to identify and deliver services that are important to you. In order to continue delivering these services at our current level, Council will need to find additional funding.

The most sustainable option is to apply for a Special Rate Variation (SRV).
