Dimboola receives $400,000 streetscape grant

DIMBOOLA'S eastern entrance will be improved and the town centre redeveloped with a $400,000 State Government grant.

Member for Lowan High Delahunty was in Dimboola to announce the grant.

He said the Dimboola Streetscape Project would improve the town's amenities and make it more attractive for visitors.

"A new alfresco dining area, which will be constructed on the corner of Lloyd Street and Lochiel Street, will form an important part of this project," he said.

"This project will also deliver new footpaths, kerbing and parking areas on Lochiel Street, as well as landscaping works on both sides of Lochiel Street between Lloyd Street and Chapel Street.

"Dimboola's eastern entrance will receive vital infrastructure improvements with the construction of kerbing, footpaths and landscaping on the south side of High Street, mirroring works which have been previously completed on the north side of High Street."

Mr Delahunty also announced the government would provide $30,000 for Hindmarsh Shire Council's recreation strategy for 2014-2024.

He said the money would help the council develop a plan for future sport and recreation projects in the muncipality.

"We want to make it easier for communities to come together, stay active, enjoy their sport and recreation facilities and lead healthier lives. An important way of achieving this is through strategic planning," he said.
