Major projects in Singleton can now be completed after a funding boost from the NSW Government under the $200 million Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Singleton council was successful in their applications for three projects including $879,820 in funding to complete stages 6-11 of Rose Point Park. The park will now see the expansion of the all abilities playground, including new equipment and improvements to access in and around the existing playground.
The Singleton State Emergency Service received $260,000 for a facility upgrade and the Singleton Showground Facilities Upgrade Project received $125,482.
Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen made the announcement this week and said the investment will make sure there are upgraded facilities for the whole community to enjoy.
"Our Upper Hunter electorate has been calling out for upgrades to local facilities and I'm thrilled these can now be carried out."
Singleton Mayor Sue Moore said she is looking forward to seeing the works get underway.
"All three of these projects will make a considerable difference to the people of Singleton, but the Rose Point project is particularly special to expand what's on offer to everyone in our community - regardless of ability - and reinforce Singleton as an embracing and inclusive community."
