Camden to benefit from grant acceptance
Posted 3 months ago
The Camden area’s growth is set to continue after Council accepted two grants for further upgrades at its Ordinary Meeting last night.
Grant funding of $2.8 million from the NSW Government’s Special Infrastructure Contributions was accepted to advance the planning and design for the future upgrade of Rickard Road from Ingleburn Road to Heath Road in Leppington.
Camden Civic Centre will also receive an upgrade to its audio-visual equipment after Council secured almost $100,000 in NSW Government Club Grants funding.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the funding was pivotal to the continuing growth of the area.
“It is important to continue upgrading Council’s existing assets whilst also adding to local infrastructure as Camden continues to grow,” Cr Fedeli said.
“The future upgrade of roads in Leppington is pivotal to connecting new community precincts in growth areas within our area in future years.
“Camden Civic Centre is already a fantastic venue which has hosted the likes of well-renown comedians Peter Helliar, Kitty Flanagan and Lawrence Mooney as well as cover bands including ABBASBACK. Upgrading the audio-visual equipment in the Centre’s auditorium will enhance the experience for visitors and make the venue even more attractive to potential entertainers.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for both sets of funding and in assisting the Camden area become the true home of south west Sydney.”
The future upgrade of roads in Leppington joins more than $3.5 million in grant funding accepted by Council late last year to upgrade and design road improvements at Porrende Street, Narellan and the Remembrance Driveway/Old Hume Highway Corridor upgrade.
