Councillor for Communities, Towns and Villages, Sheryl Windle said the region’s communities are an incredibly valuable part of our region which is why these investments are so worthwhile.
“Our region has many smaller towns and villages that contribute greatly to our unique feel and identity” Cr Windle said.
“By ensuring these communities receive the appropriate upgrades and new infrastructure, Council can help maintain the already fantastic liveability of these areas”
“Council receives a large amount of feedback from residents regarding future works in the region and staff work hard to listen and implement the most effective projects.”
