$35,000 boost to community infrastructure delivered in Oxley

24 September 2014

The Federal Government is delivering on its election commitments to the electorate of Oxley through the Community Development Grants Programme.

Senator for Queensland Barry O’Sullivan today announced $35,000 for the Jindalee Golf Club Safety Fence Upgrade Project had been delivered.

Senator Barry O’Sullivan said the funding was a win for the local community and was another example of the Federal Government’s commitment to building infrastructure for communities across Australia.

“A safety fence has been constructed alongside the Jindalee Golf Club’s first and tenth tee to address public safety concerns,” Senator O’Sullivan said.

“Works included removing the original fence and garden bed, and installing a new screen fence.

“This will provide a significant safety improvement for golf players, as well as local residents to reduce the risk of injury from playing golf.”

The Federal Government is in the process of delivering $314.2 million towards almost 300 community projects across Australia.

The programme is administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development which undertakes a value with relevant money assessment of each project against the programme guidelines to ensure the efficient, effective, ethical, and economical use with relevant money.
