  • Results are in for project priorities

    Total

    More than 420 people took part in a poll to prioritise projects for the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF).

    The results put the community’s priorities in the following order:

    1. Female change room facilities at three sportsgrounds
    2. Develop adult laydown change facilities within the CBD for people with a disability
    3. Upgrade and enhance existing parks, playgrounds and community facilities
    4. Upgrade amenities at Anderson Oval and Frenchs Fields
    5. Install footpaths to connect our communities
    6. Social infrastructure for the nine rural villages in our community

    Council will now apply for the top three projects.

    The review process, which will involve consultation with the Member for Wagga Wagga, will consider the results of this poll.

    Seven people nominated a new project. Some of these do not fit the criteria for the SCCF program and are being considered by Council staff separately, while others will be considered for year two applications of the program.

    Applications will also be developed for some community projects that have been identified in consultation with the Member for Wagga Wagga.

  • Develop adult laydown change facilities in the CBD for people with a disability

    Adult laydown change facilities allow community members with a disability and carers to visit and stay within an area for a longer period of time.

    Currently the Wagga CBD does not have access to these facilities which is impacting on the access to the CBD for these community members.
