NSW showgrounds receive additional funding for repair and renewal projects
An additional $10.77 million in funding from the NSW Government will allow for 129 shovel-ready projects to be undertaken to repair and renew 71 showgrounds across the State - from Bega to Ballina and Barwon to Blacktown.
NSW Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said the extra funding is part of the government’s COVID-19 Stimulus Package.
Minister Pavey notes that “last month the NSW Government allocated $12.5 million to support 393 shovel-ready projects at 137 showgrounds across the State.
“A further $12.5 million will be allocated to more showground upgrade projects next financial year bringing total spending to $35.77 million.
“These stimulus investments will provide a boost for communities and their economies by supporting tradies and building material suppliers with work while strengthening showground infrastructure for the future.”
NSW Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes added “from Bega to Ballina and Barwon to Blacktown, these projects will help to revive these valuable community assets and provide an opportunity to support local businesses right across the State during construction.”
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said as the Government moved from the response to recovery phase of the COVID pandemic these vital works would help create jobs and support communities get back on their feet.
“As a Government everything we do right now is focused on job creation to keep more people in jobs and businesses in business.
“Funding for projects like this will make a real difference in our regional communities by supporting local jobs and rejuvenating showgrounds which are vital community hubs for our regional communities.”
