Whether you’re wanting to find a job, look for community services, or pay your rates we have a wealth of information on living in the Blue Mountains. In this section you can also find information on animals, buying and selling property and waste and recycling.
We value businesses that support the needs of our community. Our City’s diverse range of villages and towns offer businesses a variety of environments in which to operate. Whether you’re interested in learning about what’s driving economic development, finding the right permit, or submitting a tender or quote, you’ll find tools and resources here.
Council has 105 parks across the Blue Mountains. We provide 29 sportsgrounds and 66 sport courts. We manage 135kms of walking tracks and almost 90 lookouts. We own and maintain 5 aquatic centres, 34kms of bike paths, 15km of the Great Blue Mountains Trail, 7 cliff sport precincts, 6 skate parks, 5 natural campgrounds and 2 tourist parks. We also have a BMX bike track and a hang gliding launch pad.
The Blue Mountains is one of only two cities in the world surrounded by a World Heritage Area. It also sits within the Sydney drinking water catchment, servicing 1.7 million people. Get information here on how we manage and help protect our unique environment. We also provide an overview of how you can get involved.
Explore our information and resources on things that you need to consider before building, renovating or subdividing land. Lodge and track your application online and view development applications on exhibition.
The Blue Mountains is home to nearly 80,000 people residing in 27 towns and villages, spread across 100 kilometres of mountainous terrain. A key challenge for us is fostering social and economic well-being, while maintaining and protecting the World Heritage environment that surrounds us.
