“Council is focused on providing opportunities for the community to connect in a safe, inclusive way,” Cr Burnett said.

“The Events and Entertainment team are designing events to meet the current COVID-19 health requirements, such as the Symphony Under the Stars and a new event that we are excited to announce very soon.”

He said should the Drive-In movies be held again, the team would look to host during the school holidays with a focus on night sessions.
