Half-day event

Following the postponement of the Kempsey Show in April, the Kempsey Show Society has applied to Council for half-day local events (afternoon) for the 2017 Kempsey Show on Saturday 16 September and Sunday 17 September, 2017.

A declared local event day does not automatically mean employers are compelled to treat the day as a public holiday. Entitlements to staff will only arise where agreed to at the workplace level, usually as an enterprise agreement or contract. For a full outline on public holiday and local event days please visit 

Submissions can be lodged in writing by close of business, Friday 30 June, 2017. The application and any submissions will be reported to the July 2017 Council meeting before being forwarded to NSW Industrial Relations for consideration by the Minister and gazettal.

Bitou Bush aerial spraying

Bitou Bush

Weather permitting, Council will be aerial spraying the noxious weed Bitou Bush on Stuarts Point Beach from 19 June to 23 June.

The spraying will be done with the chemical Roundup which is registered to control Bitou Bush. This work is to reduce Bitou Bush infestations on the coastline and promote the revegetation of native species.

Some beach accesses will be closed for a short period of time while the works are taking place. Council apologise for any inconvenience resulting from this necessary work. A map indicating where spraying will be undertaken is available on Council’s website.

If you have any concerns or for more information contact Council Customer Services on 6566 3200

To help celebrate, the Department of Family and Community Services has $200,000 in grant funding available for community organisations to host events on the day. Applications close 5pm Friday 14 July, 2017.
