Council’s Recreation Coordinator Tracey Whillock said that Dubbo Regional Sports Council have provided funding for a number of projects to improve the sporting facilities in the region in recent months.

The funding administered by Dubbo Regional Sports Council is funded through a percentage of the fees and charges collected from sporting organisations being placed in the ‘Playing Field Improvement Fund’ restricted asset.

This was combined with $60,000 from the Asian Cup Legacy Funding, and a further $20,000 contributed by the Association $20.000 by Council will see this project completed over the summer,” she said.

“Dubbo Touch Association also had an application for $6,535 approved by Dubbo Regional Sports Council to accompany $6,535 by the club and $14,470 from a Local Sporting Grant Program to build a community shelter and BBQ area at John McGrath Oval,”

“The club will also look to install a bubbler and water refill station and portable grand stands with funding received through the Dubbo Regional Council Stronger Communities Fund,” Ms Whillock said.

“$10,082 was also approved for Dubbo Netball Association to install an awning off the front of their clubhouse and a large window in the upper storey of the clubhouse,”
