Do we need new sports facilities?

Does Stroud have a sporting project that needs funding?

The NSW Government has announced its $100 million Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund. This fund will invest in new and existing venues to improve the participation and performance in sports at all levels.

The fund objectives are to:

  • increase the number and type of regional level sporting facilities
  • improve the standard of existing regional level sporting facilities
  • increase participation opportunities in sport
  • provide infrastructure that enables economic growth and boost productivity.

This fund targets investments over $1 million.

The following groups can apply:

  • local government authorities
  • state sporting organisations
  • incorporated, community based, not-for-profit sporting organisations (clubs or district associations)
  • educational organisations (such as schools, TAFEs and universities) in conjunction with local councils and local or state sporting entities
  • private enterprises.

Project nominations involving partnerships of the above groups are encouraged.

The land on which the facility is to be developed must be one of the following:

  • Crown reserve land
  • land owned by a public authority
  • municipal property
  • land held for public purposes by trustees under a valid lease, title or trust deed that adequately protects the interests of the public
  • private land that benefits the community’s interests in sport and active recreation.
