$2.97M AVAILABLE FOR COMMUNITY PROJECTS IN PARKES SHIRE

Council is currently in a fortunate position of having two allocations of funding available to apply for local community infrastructure projects: the Australian Government's Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program) for $1.3m and the NSW Government Resources for Regions (R4R) Fund for $1.67m.

We need you to help us to prioritise which projects should be delivered with this funding.

The two different allocations of funding have slightly different rules about what is eligible - have a read of the details below and then vote and comment on the projects you want to see get funded.

  1. Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program): Projects must involve the construction, maintenance and/or improvements to council-owned assets that are generally accessible to the public. Projects will need to deliver benefits to the community, such as improved accessibility, visual amenity and safety benefits.


  2. Resources for Regions (R4R) program: Projects must deliver public benefit and cannot be a privately owned asset. Eligible projects must mitigate the impact of mining on local infrastructure or deliver new economic opportunities, improve community amenity and wellbeing.


Voting and contributions close Friday 31 July 2020. The information gathered will be used by Council to make an informed decision on the final list of projects to be submitted to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications for consideration.

If there is a project you would love to see get funding that is NOT listed below, please add your project idea to our Future Projects page and we will review these for future funding opportunities.
