This page is dedicated to updating our community on the extensive damage to Council’s Buildings, Parks and Facilities since the February and March 2022 flood events.

Over 100 Council sites were affected by the February and March 2022 flooding events, including buildings, parks, public toilets and facilities.

The majority of this project is funded under the Community, Recreation and Cultural (CRC) Assets Restoration. The scope of this project covers the restoration of assets that have been flood affected. There are other Council owned assets that are not identified in the scope of this project, that will fall under different grant funding guidelines.

Council is currently working to an estimated completion of June 30, 2024 for the repair of all affected sites.



All current works that have updates are categorised by project name. If viewing via a smartphone, you can find the 'Projects by Name' at the bottom of this page. If on a desktop, 'Projects by Name' are to the right.

Council was able to complete Emergency and Immediate Restoration works under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements for these assets until 31/12/22 (subsequent extension was granted to 31/01/23). Emergency works for larger built assets have focussed on the removable of flood debris, impacted building materials and electrical componentry, structural drying and providing emergency temporary facilities such as port-a-loo’s and electrical connections. Whilst less damaged assets such as Public Toilets and Parks have had immediate restorative work completed.

The demolition and removal of impacted materials from larger built assets has enabled the scoping and estimation works required to make submissions to Resilience NSW’s administering agencies to secure funding to return these assets to their pre-disaster condition. Community, Recreation and Cultural Asset Restoration works can be completed within 2 years after the end of the financial year in which the disaster occurred.

With many assets requiring restoration, Bennett Constructions has been appointed as the managing contractor.

The below table identifies all the different Council Buildings, Parks and Facilities that require restoration works following the February/March 2022 Natural Disaster event.

    The Lismore Memorial Baths became more than just a construction site this week as Bennett Constructions with assistance from Konnect Fastening Systems hosted a special barbecue to commemorate two vital causes – R U OK?Day and MATES in Construction.


    The Baths transformed into a hub of unity, support and camaraderie as Council staff, local contractors and construction workers gathered for the event.
    R U OK Day is a reminder that a simple question can make a world of difference. While Mates in Construction addresses the high level of suicide within the Australian construction industry.


    The barbecue emphasised that it's okay not to be okay, and seeking help and support is a sign of strength, not weakness.

    Lismore City Council has welcomed the State and Federal Government’s announcement of grants totalling $15 million to assists Lismore’s City Hall and, arts and cultural sector as they continue to rebuild after the February 2022 natural disaster.

    Mayor Steve Krieg said the announcement was great news for the community and will allow popular services like the library and art gallery to continue to provide services while their buildings are being repaired, as well as delivering flood resilience and functionality enhancements to Lismore City Hall.

    β€œThis is great news for the entire community, including library users and our arts community,” he said.

    β€œOur community has missed City Hall, the Lismore Library and the Regional Art Gallery since the natural disaster and these grants are a significant step in Lismore’s rebuild.

    β€œI would like to thank local State Member Janelle Saffin and Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan for their assistance in getting these important grants.”

    About $8 million of the total package will go to community organisations within the local government area, with Council receiving almost $7 million, which comprises of:

    • $5.2 million for Lismore City Hall flood mitigation and sustainable improvements
    • $177,240 for the Lismore Library to create a meeting and workshop space at Lismore Central Shopping Centre, and
    • $1.3 million for the continuation of the Pop-Up Regional Art Gallery and office space in Magellan Street.

    Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin said the rebuilding is vitally important to help re-open arts, cultural and community spaces.

    β€œThey are at the very heart of community life,” she said.

    β€œWe rely on our galleries, museums and cultural hubs to revive our spirits and tell our stories and they are critical to the identity of our cities and towns.

    β€œInvesting in these spaces is about investing in the future of our communities so they can flourish.”

    Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the grants will play a role in our recovery.

    β€œThe restoration of our civic buildings after the floods is an important stage of the recovery and the creation of cultural facilities and activities is essential to restoring our community wellbeing,” he said.

    β€œI look forward to the work commencing.”

    The projects were successful through the second round of the Community Local Infrastructure Recovery Package – Arts and Cultural Assets Program, designed to support medium to long-term recovery under the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
