Cabonne Shire will soon benefit from infrastructure improvements and programs that help the community thrive, thanks to the NSW Government’s $75 million Resources for Regions Round Eight.
Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier Sam Farraway announced on Monday, $2,621,696 for the Activation of Cabonne’s Town and Villages.
“This project focuses on town activation works for Cabonne’s two population centres Molong and Canowindra as well as the replacement of town and village entrance signage throughout the shire”
“These upgrades will leverage off each town and village’s unique characteristics, to improve wayfinding whilst also providing residents and visitors with access to improved community infrastructure.”
It is envisioned that these upgrades will ensure that the offerings of the region continue to appeal to locals and that Cabonne leaves a positive, memorable impression on visitors to the LGA, promoting the growth and prosperity of Cabonne and encouraging returned visitation,” Mr Farraway said.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said Resources for Regions has been highly successful with Rounds One through to Seven delivering 149 projects worth $345 million to mining communities since 2012.
“Mining plays a very important part in the NSW economy, supporting tens of thousands of jobs across the state and it will continue to play a role in the Central West for years to come, which is why we’re investing in the future of mining regions,” Mr Toole said.
“The NSW Government is committed to supporting regional mining towns that supply our state with the precious resources, and I am grateful for Cabonne Shire Council putting forward these projects which will support the ongoing prosperity of the local community.”
The Resources for Regions program is part of the $2 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure for regional communities.
