$1.2m for four local projects
27th November 2020
Some great news to end the week on! Happy to report that we've secured more than $1.2m for four local projects under the Resources for Regions program.
The State Government program redirects a percentage of mining royalties back into mining communities via council-sponsored projects.
This year, Lake Macquarie City Council has been successful in applying for:
* $472,111 for Rathmines Youth Hub
* $415,779 for floodlighting Fishburn Field at Rathmines
* $50,000 for a Biraban Local Aboriginal Land Council business case
* $263,635 towards the redevelopment of Alkrington Ave Park at Fishing Pt
My congrats to those organisations and to Lake Macquarie council on its applications.
