Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes says she is keeping her fingers crossed after being advised the council’s bid for $8 million in funding for the Mackay Park Precinct development had reached round two.
The council has applied to the NSW Government’s Regional Cultural Fund for the proposed Batemans Bay Aquatic and Arts facility.
“We understand that around 240 applications were submitted and less than 100 were accepted into the second stage so we are very pleased to have got through,” Cr Innes said.
“It was a very competitive field of applications and I congratulate general manager Catherine Dale and her team for the work that went into preparing such a strong application.
The council has also applied for $28.3 million from the NSW Regional Sports and Infrastructure Fund and applicants are expected to hear if they will be invited to progress to the next stage in February 2018.
“We are also preparing a submission to the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund,” Cr Innes said.
