Welcome to Sutherland Shire Council.

We are the local government body responsible for providing services, infrastructure and public asset management for Sutherland Shire.

Our purpose is to deliver on our vision of: a connected and safe community that respects people and nature, enjoying active lives in a strong local economy.  

To achieve this, we collaborate with the state and federal governments, local agencies and our community of 230,000 people, spread over an area of 369 square kilometres.

We deliver more than 300 services to our community. Some of these, such as childcare, footpaths, water fun parks and public toilets, will be familiar to you. But did you know we also help to conserve Aboriginal heritage, provide community support services and manage the Hazelhurst Arts Centre?

All our services seek to achieve outcomes identified in our Community Strategic Plan. And our long-term plans for the community are set out in Our vision for the future.

You can get involved in our planning now and into the future - everything in between - at our community consultation site, Join the Conversation.
