New urban bike paths, outdoor fitness facilities, improvements to community and sporting facilities, playspaces, bridge upgrades, walking trails and town centre beautification works are the focus of projects put forward by Campbelltown Council for funding under the NSW Government’s WestInvest program.
Under the program, Council is guaranteed $26.6 million as part of $400 million allocated across 15 Western Sydney councils and is also eligible to apply for a share of $1.6 billion from a competitive grant round.
“The projects identified are spread across the entirety of our LGA and cover many different aspects of our community, from larger community-building projects to improvements of our existing infrastructure and open space,” Mayor George Greiss said.
Projects will be considered by councillors at the June Council meeting to be put forward for the $26.6 million Council fund, along with projects being considered for submission during the competitive application round. Council is also supporting local community organisations to submit a range of community-led projects.
Cr Greiss thanked all who participated in the community consultation and shared their ideas to improve Campbelltown.
“I would also like to recognise those community groups who have also applied for funding and were successful in progressing through to the next round,” he added.
