Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) has resolved to provide up to $10,000 from its Section 94 accounts to assist Currabubula Pony Club with the erection of a shed and partial internal fitout.
According to LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope, Currabubula Pony Club is a long-standing, local organisation that progressively and actively seeks grant funding opportunities as they arise. He said they invest resources into the community that improve facilities with a view to attracting future events and expanding current usage opportunities.
“The Club is of the opinion that not only will these improvements benefit their organisation, it will also benefit other patrons who use the facility. LPSC’s Environmental and Economic Development team have been working collaboratively with the Club for some time to facilitate the project and make it a reality. The relevant development approvals have been obtained and the project is shovel-ready. Consultation with relevant stakeholders will be undertaken as part of the delivery process,” he said.
“The facility will be located at the Currabubula Recreation Reserve and will positively contribute to the precinct. It is expected the project will be completed this financial year,” he continued.
“Council is pleased to be able to partner with organisations in our smaller communities in delivering outcomes that drive economic development and district facilities that are safe and built to agreed standards,” Councillor Hope concluded.
