From the General Manager


“Mosman is a progressive council that is innovative and responsive, with a wide range of projects, services and regular activities designed to make a difference and meet the needs of our local community.

Mosman staff members have spearheaded significant works across a diverse range of fields, including large-scale engineering projects, such as the recent extensive refurbishment of the iconic Balmoral Promenade, major exhibitions at Mosman Art Gallery, popular regular activities at Barry O’Keefe Library and technological innovations including Council’s MyMosman app.

Mosman Council is the sort of place where employees want to come to work and it’s because we’re keeping one eye on the proud traditions of our past and the other on a future we’re creating for ourselves and the community we serve. A future that encourages vibrancy, connectedness and is sustainable for future generations.”
