Member for Tweed Geoff Provest today announced over $1.45 million in funding to breathe new life into community and local sporting facilities across Tweed through round two of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Tweed Shire Council secured NSW Government funding for 8 projects, which include upgrades to sporting and community facilities across the electorate.

This means a total of $1,451,446 for projects across Tweed community and local sporting facilities including:

  • $100,000 for Casuarina Sports field lighting
  • $350,000 for upgrades to Barry Sheppard Sports Field
  • $220,000 for Tweed Heads South Aquatic Centre

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said the roll out of the second round of projects takes Stronger Country Communities funding to $300 million.

“I congratulate Tweed Shire Council and look forward to the local sports and community facility improvements that will make the region an even more attractive place to work and raise a family,” Mr Barilaro said.

“The $300 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.6 billion Regional Growth Fund that is employing local tradies, putting local suppliers to work and providing the right environment to operate regional businesses,” he said.
