East Bowral Improvements using Section 94 Funds

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

East Bowral residents have an opportunity to shape the way their neighbourhood is improved in coming years.

As East Bowral grew, Wingecarribee Shire Council collected developer contributions to make improvements to infrastructure which would benefit the wider community. These funds have been used to provide playgrounds, community centres, footpaths and other infrastructure.

The Section 94 Plan has now been repealed by Council as East Bowral is fully developed, however there are funds remaining that need to be spent. A number of projects have been nominated by the East Bowral Community Group and Council staff which could be undertaken.

Information about each of the projects is provided on the right in the Library.

Unfortunately the ideas put forward exceed the money available so we are asking the community to prioritise them. It is now up to East Bowral residents to consider the proposed improvements and available Section 94 funds.

There are many ways you can share your views and contribute ideas:

  • Attend the public meeting on 1 September from 7.30pm in the East Bowral Community Centre to hear more about the proposed improvements and ask questions of Council officers. Bookings are essential for free childcare or RSVP by calling 48680761.

  • Let your friends and neighbours know about this consultation opportunity so they too can have their say. Residents who don't have internet access can request a survey to be posted to them by calling 4868 0761.
