Our local budget
Initiatives in the Division 11 Local Area Works Budget 2020-21 and projects in the City Budget 2020-21 Capital Works Program delivers for Robina, Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Waters. Major upgrades are planned for roads, parks and community facilities.

Signalisation projects replace busy roundabouts with safer traffic lights and pedestrian facilities.
New shared paths
New shared paths make it easier to leave the car at home and support those with disability to access services.

Better parks and reserves
Construction will commence on the $15 million Robina City Parklands, our very first city-significant parkland. Meanwhile, new toilets and better lighting will make the most of Varsity Lakes Foreshore Parklands.
Major parkland improvements in Robina and Varsity Lakes will help support a growing population. Renovation projects will revitalise older linkage parks.
More toilets and facilities
A new disability-friendly toilet block will unlock Lake Orr for family get-togethers and relieve walkers.
Lighting projects focus on safety and encourage early evening use of our popular recreational walks.
