Council was successful in its grant applications for
- $4.6m towards a pedestrian bridge overpass, connecting Castle Hill Showground and Fred Caterson Reserve in Castle Hill
- $1.1m towards the extension of Livvi’s Place Playground at Bernie Mullane Reserve in Kellyville
- $900,000 towards the rejuvenation of the Baker Crescent Shops in Baulkham Hills
This $6.6 million is in addition to the $15.5 million of WestInvest funding previously secured by Council to build a new indoor recreation centre at Horseworld and upgrade the Shire’s flood warning systems.
I thank the NSW Government and Premier Dom Perrottet for supporting these key Council-nominated projects. These initiatives will help our growing community and will service our residents for decades to come.
