Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Minister for Local Government Gabrielle Upton and Member for Oatley Mark Coure today announced a $9.5 million funding package for Georges River Council.

The funding will provide a range of much-needed sport and recreational facilities for local residents.

“Georges River Council has done a terrific job since its creation in 2016 to deliver for its community,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“This funding injection is in recognition of the council’s strong performance and its ongoing commitment to deliver high quality infrastructure, facilities and services to its residents.”

The funding package includes:

  • $1 million for Gannons Park Stage 3 – Irrigation, Resurfacing of 8 fields; Holding Tanks, Treatment Plant and Drainage Works Gannons Park;
  • $800,000 for  Gannons Park – Sports Amenities Building;
  • $2.2 million for Hurstville Oval – Expansion to Booth Saunders Pavilion Building;
  • $3 million Poulton Park – Synthetic field and sports amenities building;
  • $2.5 million for Hurstville Golf Course – New clubhouse, reconstruction of 6 greens and new pathways.

Mr Coure said the NSW Government is delighted to help the council provide new and upgraded sport and recreational facilities for local residents.

“As a member of several local sporting clubs, I know only too well the benefits of participating in sport for adults and children,” Mr Coure said.

“Our local sporting clubs deserve first-class facilities and this funding boost will help the council deliver new and upgraded playing surfaces and amenities at some of our most popular parks and ovals.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Premier and Minister for Local Government for acting on my request for this funding.”

Ms Upton said the funding is in addition to the $20 million the NSW Government provided to Georges River Council when it was created in May 2016 towards upfront administration costs and to kick-start delivery of community infrastructure.

“The NSW Government is committed to supporting councils to provide the key infrastructure and services their communities need and deserve,” Ms Upton said.

“The Government is proud to continue to support Georges River Council to strengthen its capacity to deliver for the local community.”
