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.

New Hanging Planters

Beautify Burwood

Have you been greeted by the hanging baskets that are filled with new plants? 

Council recently has installed 12 hanging planters on decorative poles, a pilot program as part of our Burwood Town Centre Beautification Plan, to provide an instant shot of colour that will last right through to spring.

This is in addition to the 24 new planter boxes Council installed along Burwood Road late last year.
