Gloucester, Dungog projects funded by CBP program


Gloucester, Gresford, Dungog, Clarence Town and Paterson will boast upgraded infrastructure, thanks to the NSW Government’s 2021 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

Ten local projects, including the Gloucester Public School P&C Association’s ninja climbing equipment ($30,000), Gresford Vacy Football Club’s stage 2 kiosk improvement ($29,096), Dungog Junior Rugby League Club’s kiosk upgrade at Bennett Park ($25,000), Clarence Town Rugby League Club’s electronic scoreboard ($24,330) and Country Women’s Association’s building maintenance at Dungog ($23,424), were successful in the latest round of funding.

The Upper Hunter electorate received a total of $400,000, according to state MP Dave Layzell.

“The state government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities,” he said.

“This is fantastic news for Gloucester, Gresford, Dungog, Clarence Town and Paterson with a total of $175,136 headed to those towns.

“This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application.

“And, I look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for our local community groups.”

The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 16,000 projects since it kicked off in 2009.

In 2022, there will be another $400,000 to allocate in each electorate with applications to open early next year.
