What’s happening in our community
Thursday 7 April 2022

Hi there,

There’s been lots going on in recent weeks! In this edition, we'll meet one of first-time Councillors, Jessica Kellahan, announce opportunities for you to have your say on some exciting new initiatives, and highlight some key projects and events happening in your community.


As a high school teacher and mother of two, Cr Kellahan is particularly looking forward to working with our youth and advocating for youth mental health and education services. 

She’s also passionate about encouraging inclusivity and diversity in our community, advocating for climate change solutions, and promoting our arts and culture sector.

Hear from Cr Kellahan

We’re delighted that the Australian Government has committed $80 million to the Albury Wodonga Cross Border Regional Deal, which will allow for a range of important community projects to progress.

The opportunities through the Regional Deal wouldn’t have been possible without the Two Cities One Community collaboration.

Albury 2050 is our Community Strategic Plan - identifying AlburyCity’s most important priorities - as defined by you, our community. 

The draft Plan is now available for you to have your say, so make sure you jump online and share your thoughts.

Your 2050

Our Botanic Gardens Master Plan will guide the management of the gardens over the next twenty years, maintaining its historical significance while building the amenities and spaces you have asked for.

The draft Plan is now available for you to have your say and we’d love to hear your thoughts.

Our Botanic Gardens

We’re working with Charles Sturt University to undertake a Heritage Review. This project will review our heritage vision, themes, listings and invite nominations for places of heritage significance.

If you live, work or visit the Albury Local Government Area, or are a heritage property owner or tenant, we’re keen to hear your views.

Be part of our heritage

The 2022 Youth Council have elected their leadership team, with Lachie Carpenter as the new Youth Mayor, who will be supported by Isaac Street as the Deputy Youth Mayor. They also elected Colbey Baines as Secretary and Grace Alexander as Treasurer.

The new Youth Mayor and Deputy Youth Mayor will lead the 12-member Youth Council, which is made up of young people aged 12-22 who are passionate about representing the views of their peers.

Meet the team

In partnership with NSW Police, we launched a new CCTV camera network in and around the Lavington CBD.

The cameras will provide live footage to monitors at the Albury Police Station, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The system is designed to ensure community members feel safe on our streets, and provides an extra layer of protection by deterring crime and giving local police a valuable tool to identify offenders.

Stay in the picture

In February, 400 local residents were randomly contacted by telephone for the Community Satisfaction Survey, conducted by independent partner, Micromex Research.

We were humbled to see that residents have a continuing high level of satisfaction with the services that we provide on your behalf, and that we are outperforming our regional counterparts. 

How we performed

Music in the Gardens is a series of free outdoor concerts in the spectacular Albury Botanic Gardens. 

On the third Sunday of March, April, May, September, October and November, the gardens are transformed into an outdoor amphitheatre where you can enjoy entertainment from Australian and international touring artists while relaxing on the beautifully landscaped lawns.

Join us from 1pm - 3pm on Easter Sunday 17 April for a performance from Owen Campbell & The Cosmic People - alternative blues and soulful cosmic rock at its best.

Feel the music
