Noosa Shire to receive $2.8 million jobs-supporting infrastructure grant

Published:

Noosa Shire will see more jobs, increased liveability and stronger local economies with the approval of almost $2.8 million towards a Hinterland Adventure Playground in Cooroy.

The playground will incorporate open green space, nature exploration areas, natural climbing structures, replicated creek waterplay, as well as picnic shelters, BBQs and amenities, made possible through the Queensland Government’s more than $58.5 million 2019-21 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP).

Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe congratulated the Noosa Shire Council on its successful project.

“I applaud the council and its initiative in recognising the need for this project as well as securing the funding to help deliver it,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“This Government has committed to creating employment opportunities and this program will do just that.

“Upgrading or building new infrastructure has an immediate positive impact on the liveability of a town or city.

“This can have fantastic spinoffs such as creating jobs, retaining and growing a population base and generating business confidence to invest locally.”

Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington welcomed the funding.

“This funding provides a welcome opportunity to fast track priority infrastructure projects that have broad community benefit,” Mayor Wellington said.

“It’s a terrific example of the two levels of government working together to deliver great outcomes for the community.”

The $58.56 million 2019-21 Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program is designed to provide funding assistance to support Local Governments to deliver priority infrastructure and essential services that meet the identified needs of their communities.

The Local Government and Grants and Subsidies Program projects must be completed by 30 June 2021.
