20 November 2020 - Statement issued by Deputy Mayor Damian Wyld (principal spokesperson) 

The City of Tea Tree Gully welcomes the State Government’s plans to end the hard lockdown early.   

Before we make any decisions to reopen our facilities or recommence the provision of non-essential services and programs, we await updates to the Emergency Management Direction.   

The next Emergency Management Direction will be released by SAPOL over the weekend and we will be able to review our operations on Monday, 23 November. As such, all of our facilities, services and programs remain closed until further notice. 

This means our library, Waterworld Aquatic Centre, recreations centres, community centres, gallery and arts centre remain closed at this time. 

While these facilities may be closed, our parks and walking trails are open for outdoor exercise. 

I thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this time and encourage people to continue observing state authorities’ directives.  

Please keep an eye on our website and social media for further updates. 

Take care and stay safe.

The City of Tea Tree Gully has plans and processes in place to respond to current COVID-19 restrictions. 
More about Council services and programs

Your bins will still be collected, and community safety issues and urgent animal control services will be addressed. Fire prevention measures, such as clearing fire trails, will also continue.

In response to the Emergency Management Direction issued by SAPOL, all Council buildings will close to the public, including the Civic Centre, library, Waterworld, and community and recreation centres until further notice. All non-essential services and programs have also been cancelled.

Online requests, phone lines, social media channels and emails will continue to be monitored. You are always welcome to contact us in this way.

Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for any updates.

In the meantime, please remember our councillors and staff will support you as much as possible during these difficult and challenging times.  

With many people now living in isolation, it’s important to stay connected to family, friends and neighbours safely and responsibly. Please check on them regularly, especially if they are vulnerable or live alone. A simple phone call, message or email could make someone’s day.

If it all gets too much, I encourage you to reach out to support services like Beyond Blue and Lifeline, particularly if you are experiencing anxiety or depression.

Please continue to follow SAPOL safety advice. Hopefully we can get through this period quickly and prepare to celebrate the Christmas season with our loved ones.
