As many in our community would remember, in early 2022 we experienced our wettest January in 40 years. Wild storm activity and the resulting flooding and inundation of our sewer network had a major impact across our region, with our city subsequently declared a Natural Disaster Zone by the NSW Government. Find out what we're doing to prepare for future storm events.

In partnership with City of Wodonga, we've  endorsed a new Two Cities One Community Partnership Agreement that reaffirms both Councils’ 2017 commitment to working together in planning, developing and growing the Albury Wodonga region, for the benefit of our border community.

What it means

During conversations on what you'd like to see for our region 'Towards Albury 2050', you told us you want access to more bicycle and walking tracks, whilst mainting our stunning natural environment. Eastern Hill is regularly used by walkers, trail runners, mountain bikers and visitors to our region, and  the time has come for an upgrade to bring the space to life, whilst protecting the natural landscape.

Share you thoughts

One of our roles is to listen to and represent the needs and desires of our community, and advocate on your behalf. Our Advocacy Strategy outlines how we will focus our efforts on the things that are important to you.

What do you think?

You've told us you want accessible and inclusive facilities that meet a broad range of community needs. We're working towards upgrading our facilities to improve the customer experience for all, and want to know what's important to you.

Have your say

​Not every disability shows visual signs. Some disabilities are hidden, but they can significantly impact how people experience the world. To make Albury a more inclusive and accessible community for people to visit, live, work and play, we've joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower scheme. People with hidden disabilities can choose to wear a sunflower product, as a subtle way of letting others know they may require additional support, assistance, or a bit more time.
