About Us

What does Clarence City Council provide to our residents and ratepayers…

What would our city be like without a waste and recycling collection, maintenance of council-owned roads and footpaths?

What if there were no playgrounds, local parks, tracks and trails, sports ground facilities or arts and events?

And, what if there were no town planning, community halls,youth or children’s services?

Every day we deliver these services plus many more to ensure Clarence is a great place to live and that our city is vibrant, prosperous and sustainable. Here is a snapshot of what we provide to our residents:
