As part of the NSW Government’s $2.3 billion Health and Economic Stimulus Package (COVID Stimulus), $25 million has been allocated over two years to fund maintenance and improvement works at showgrounds around the State. Funding is being allocated in two phases with showground managers invited by their respective local members to submit funding proposals for consideration. Phase 1 applications recently closed and funding is expected to be distributed to successful applicants in June 2020. The program is administered by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands. Further information about the program, including details about Phase 2 applications can be found here.
COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.
Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a shame to see your comment deleted)
Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
