How is the improvement work to be funded?
As noted in the associated report to Council, there is a construction budget for the Seymour Park Playground of $205,900 in the 2019/20 Capital Works Program and $300,000 is allocated in the long term financial plan for the replacement of the amenities block.
Council intends to apply for grant funding via the Everyone Can Play Grant closing in December 2019 with the hope of obtaining funding to complete the playground, associated infrastructure, as well as the amenities block in 2020/21.
Should the grant application be unsuccessful, the capital program will proceed in the stages planned, being playground works in 2019/20 and public toilet works in 2025/26.
