Community Groups in Cabonne: Are being urged to apply for Council grants to improve the “liveability” of their areas. Applications are open for the second round of the Council’s 2017-18 Community Assistance Program grants, which are designed to provide an ongoing or sustainable benefit to Cabonne communities. In order to be eligible for the Community Assistance Program, applicants must be a not-for-profit organisation in the Cabonne Local Government Area and be undertaking a project on non-commercial facilities within the Shire. Grants are provided on a 50:50 basis, but communities can provide their half of the funding through voluntary labour or in-kind contributions. Nine projects, ranging in value from $400 to $9,800, were funded under the first round of the program in October 2017. Applications for the second round of CAP funding close at 5pm on Friday 16 March 2018. Application forms and further details about the grants can be obtained by contacting Cabonne Council’s Grants Officer Naomi Schroder on 6392 3200 or by visiting the Council’s website www.cabonne.nsw.gov.au

Aerial view helps keep network in top shape: Essential Energy will take to the skies over the coming months to capture a snapshot of the condition of its electricity network as part of its asset inspection program. From early February, a fixed wing plane will be used to identify damaged or deteriorating network assets and potential vegetation encroachments in the Oberon, Canowindra, Blayney, Molong, Bathurst and surrounding areas. “The program will inspect the pole top condition of 107,100 power poles across 14,788 kilometres of our network,” Mark said.
