A Coffs Coast sports facility will have a significant upgrade with the awarding of $2.165 million in the NSW Nationals in the state government’s Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund.
Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh congratulated the hardworking Coffs Harbour Kart Racing Club members on their successful application for the All Inclusive Multi-Sport Facility Major Upgrade.
“This exciting project will deliver a grid cover, track extension and resurface, and a pit area upgrade,” Mr Singh said.
“These significant works will also include accessible amenities, showers, toilets and changerooms, an upgraded canteen, a new training/function room and a new office/stewards’ room.
“I’m extremely pleased Coffs Harbour Kart Racing Club is now able to bring their plans to provide more modern, inclusive and accessible facilities to fruition.
“The club is renowned for its over-40s Australian titles – which it successfully staged on the June long weekend – among other big events.”
Almost $100 million was awarded to 38 clubs, associations, sporting organisations and councils across NSW in Round 1 of the Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund, which invests in new or upgraded facilities to provide more opportunities for people to participate in sport and be active.
This Fund is a two-year $200 million program with grants of $1-$5 million available aimed at keeping communities across NSW healthy, active and connected.
