$10m starting point
AN INITIAL $10 million investment from government for the future of Loddon Shire towns is the starting point in the council’s detailed 2022 priorities paper.
Council last week released the 20-page booklet that expands on its key election year priorities reported exclusively in the Loddon Herald in March.
“The shortage of the availability of land and homes in small communities such as Wedderburn is a significant roadblock to growth,” council says in asking for $294,000 to progress the next stages of its Wedderburn housing estate.
And government has been asked for $5 million to upgrade streetscapes in Bridgewater and Inglewood. Bridgewater works would include significant drainage improvements and removal of high gutters while Inglewood would see removal of overhead powerlines.
Also making the list of immediate requests is $3.5 million for stages two and three of the Pyramid Hill Community Centre.
