Five successful local projects in the Oatley electorate are to receive funding under the NSW Government's My Community Project program.
Oatley MP Mark Coure last week announced the successful projects to be funded under the My Community Project program which include improvements for a school playground to a community hall upgrade.
Over $24 million was made available across the State for projects that would make communities more liveable, cultural, accessible, safe, revitalised or healthy.
More than 61,400 people cast their vote through the My Community Project website or voted in person at Service NSW Centres.
The five successful projects in the Oatley electorate are:
Oatley Remakery and Sustainability Hub- $48,000:
for a monthly event providing free workshops and repair cafes for residents to learn how to repair and reuse everyday items.
Penshurst West Public School Playground Upgrades- $75,000:
for creating several purposeful playgrounds within the school to encourage physical activity, passive and imaginative play and improve overall well-being.
Oatley Anglican Church Playground and Meeting Hub- $30,000:
to establish a modern vertical garden, play area and street library in front of Oatley Anglican Church.
Peakhurst South Community Hall Revitalisation- $49,500:
to revitalise the community hall and surrounds to create a more functional, safer and aesthetic facility for school and community use.
Oatley RSL Youth Club Air Conditioning- $55,300:
for the installation of air-conditioning in both Youth Club venues where they provide community- based activities.
Mr Coure thanked all applicants and sponsors for taking the time and effort to develop their ideas and promote their projects along with the members of the community who voted.
"The inaugural My Community Project has been a great success in my electorate, with many organisations putting in submissions for original, community-based projects that will benefit many different parts of the local area," Mr Coure said.
"I would like to thank all who were involved including those who submitted ideas, voted and campaigned for their favourite projects."
"I look forward to visiting all successful applicants and sponsors and assisting them in rolling out these projects in the local community."
