Community projects funded

EFFORTS to connect Campbells Forest to a domestic and stock water supply have been given a boost.

Loddon Shire councillors last week approved $10,000 to fund a hydrology report, feasibility study and business case for a connection.

The funds are part of council’s 2021-2022 community plan allocations.

The seed funding will assist communities of Campbells Forest and Yarraberb in their long advocacy for a water supply.

Bridgewater Memorial Hall renovations and Newbridge pavement extensions are other big projects to be funded under Loddon Shire Council’s community allocations.

The two projects each receive $30,000.

Bridgewater’s allocation will fund detailed designs needed for budget preparation.

Extension of the Lyons Street pavement between Nelson and Knight Streets will improve access between the recreation reserve and the town centre.

Other Tarnagulla Ward projects funded are work on the Graham’s Lane T-intersection ($13,000), disabled carpark at Newbridge Hall ($8500) and restoration works at the hall ($7000).

Dingee Progress Association will receive a Terrick Ward allocation of $1025 for a historical information board to be placed next to the Progress Park rotunda.

Manager community support Sarah Perry told councillors: “Council’s community planning program has been a success story since its inception 18 years ago.

“Council and Loddon communities continue to attract significant external funding through the community planning process.

“This has facilitated delivery of numerous projects in Loddon’s small towns and rural districts under this banner.

“Community planning has been a catalyst for attracting significant funding to projects such as the Wedderburn streetscape improvements, Serpentine Janiember Park upgrade, Pyramid Hill Memorial Hall precinct, Boort Park upgrade, Tarnagulla Community Centre, Inglewood Town Hall Hub development, Donaldson Park redevelopment and Pyramid Hill streetscape,” Ms Perry said.
