Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh MP today announced $215,823 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund to improve community infrastructure in the region.
Coffs Harbour City Council secured NSW Government funding for Toormina Oval to upgrade their amenities, which will see athletes across the Coffs Harbour electorate benefit from additional accessible change rooms. Mr Singh said the existing amenities block at Toormina Oval is over 40 years old and was built at a time when women’s participation in sport was rare. “The upgraded amenity block will provide new additional female friendly change rooms and will also suit the needs of players with disabilities. The upgrade will also provide large permanent storage facilities,” Mr Singh said. Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said $100 million was being distributed across regional NSW, with regional communities set to benefit from more than 550 new projects.To date, rounds one and two of the program have funded more than 1,000 projects. The $400 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.7 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local programs and infrastructure that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
