Application for Funding the Batemans Bay Aquatic and Arts Facility progress to next level - Council

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes is keeping her fingers crossed after being advised that Council’s $8 million expression of interest to the NSW Government’s Regional Cultural Fund for the proposed Mackay Park Batemans Bay Aquatic and Arts facility, has progressed to the next stage

Mayor Liz Innes said, “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.

“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.

Council is currently seeking funds for the Batemans Bay Aquatic and Arts Facility from both the NSW and Australian Governments and has submitted two expressions of interest. The second expression of interest is for $28.3 million to 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,” said Clr Innes.
