Community Infrastructure Pegs

Council is seeking community input on projects selected for an application to the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is investing in infrastructure projects in regional NSW communities to improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work. The NSW Government has committed $200 million over the next two years for applications to support local infrastructure projects that will improve amenity and help sustain the social bonds at the heart of strong regional communities.

Council, through its engagement and consultation strategies, has identified a number of projects that fit the criteria of the Stronger Country Communities Fund and will be making an application seeking funding for four projects in Round 1. These projects include:

The Bellingen (Church Street) Community Precinct Project

The Bellingen Community Precinct Project will enhance the social and cultural town centre precinct. The project will deliver much needed appeal and improvements to the precinct’s social infrastructure. While work is being undertaken to revitalise the main street (Waterfall Way) to the intersection of Church Street, additional unfunded work is required to ensure the amenity and socially inclusive infrastructure addresses the needs of the northern Church Street precinct. Narrow, uneven footpaths and high gutters are challenging for those with access and mobility issues. The project addresses these issues making the precinct a more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive community space.

The Urunga Inclusive Pathways Project

The Urunga Inclusive Pathways project will see the installation of approximately 1.9kms of new pedestrian and cycleways linking parts of the Raleigh residential area to the township of Urunga. The project will create safe and inclusive passage to locals, visitors and tourists while increasing the liveability and amenity of the area. The project will connect to link locals and visitors to trip generators such as beaches, reserves, shops, services, schools and sporting facilities.

Bellingen Connecting Pathways Project

The Bellingen Connecting Pathways Project will provide a new shared pathway that is attractive, safe, convenient and accessible. The project will create linkages from the Bellingen town centre to the Butter Factory, a key tourism asset, other businesses and residents while adding to the existing connected network. The project will provide improvements to our communities’ transport options and linking residents to the services and facilities in the main business district. The project will improve the amenity and enhance the communities’ lives with improved, new and safe access including additional path and cycleways to the local high school.

The Coronation Park Redevelopment Project

The Coronation Park Redevelopment project will provide new and improved infrastructure to support the Dorrigo community and visitors with a safe, socially inclusive space. The project includes new accessible entry ways and improved paths, new accessible toilets, picnic shelter, playground equipment including a disability swing, safety fencing, a formalised parking area to support visitation, a designated accessible parking space, landscaping and ground works to level the site. The project will redevelop an existing space to better support the community particularly regarding health, wellbeing, social inclusion and accessible facilities. The project will also support increasing visitation and tourists to the area.
