Council bids for $4m in State Government grants

Mitchell Shire Council is seeking $4 million in grants from the Victorian Government to help deliver community projects including new tennis/netball courts, sports lighting, stadium improvements and a new pool slide as well as upgrades to parks, play spaces and community centres.

Council is committed to relentlessly advocating for funding to benefit our community and particularly to improving sport and physical activity opportunities for girls and women.

The projects Council has applied for grants for are:

  • Pyalong Recreation Reserve netball/ tennis courts and lighting upgrade
  • Harley Hammond Reserve, Broadford, renewal and lighting upgrade of courts 3 and 4

The populations of Wallan (14,700), Beveridge (3,700), Kilmore/Kilmore East (10,300), Broadford (5,500) and Seymour (6,500) are increasing. Part of Council’s role is to work with government and community partners to help provide community facilities and the opportunity to play sport and for our communities to connect.

The outcomes of the 2022-2023 Growing Suburbs Fund and Local Sports Infrastructure Fund applications will be announced by the State Government later this year.
