Tabulam is set for a funding boost thanks to the NSW Nationals in the federal government with new money announced to improve a number of important community facilities.

NSW Nationals dederal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said $170,000 will be spent to enhance the Tabulam Oval community precinct.

“This funding will be used to construct a new disabled amenities building, an asphalt bike track, landscaping and tree planting throughout the town,” Mr Hogan said.

“These upgrades will make it more attractive for visitors to Tabulam. This means more customers for our local businesses.

“Every single job we support makes a huge difference in our community.

“This funding is designed to support councils deliver priority infrastructure projects to support jobs and help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

This funding has been allocated through the NSW Nationals in the federal government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI). Kyogle Council received over $1 million as part of the funding allocation.
