Voluntary House Raising Policy

At its meeting of 15 March 2017 Council resolved to place on public exhibition the Voluntary House Raising Policy on Wednesday 5 April 2017 to Wednesday 3 May 2017.

  • Council’s Administration Building;
  • Cessnock Public Library;
  • Kurri Kurri Public Library;

Written submissions on the Draft Voluntary House Raising Policy should be addressed to the General Manager and will be accepted up until 5.00 pm Wednesday, 3 May 2017.
