Further upgrades are planned for Burns Oval in Trangie, thanks to funding from the NSW Government’s Crown Reserve Improvement Fund (CRIF).
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders joined with representatives from Narromine Shire Council recently to announce $32,998 has been allocated to upgrading the toilets and clubhouse accessibility at the tennis club complex.
“Narromine Shire Council has been very proactive in preparing a master plan for the Burns Oval precinct and this project is the next step in seeing that plan come to fruition,” Mr Saunders said.
“It is vital these days that public facilities have better disability access and this project will see that addressed, while at the same time improving the quality of the toilets in an area that is being used more often than it has in the past.
“The whole Burns Oval area is something everyone in Trangie can benefit from, from children through to adults, and I’m glad to see such an emphasis being placed on it by the council.”
Narromine mayor Craig Davies said the area is a wonderful example of what can happen when state and local governments work together to assist the community.
“This project is part of a suite of work we have been doing at Burns Oval, and we have been supported by the NSW Government all along,” he said.
“The oval itself has been upgraded, we have worked on the light towers and we’re continuing work on the playground, and this is the next step.
“Having facilities like these is vital in our small communities and they play a vital role in the social fabric of our towns. I’m excited to see the Burns Oval precinct coming to life.”
