Member for Monaro John Barilaro MP and I will be in Braidwood on November 21 to congratulate a number of the successful applicants for the Stronger Communities Fund. In total, 103 applications were received for the $1m fund provided to your council for community groups by the NSW Government, and 51 gained approval by the Assessment Panel. Projects from all around the local government area will be receiving funding, including projects from Gundillion, Karabar, Araluen, Wamboin, Royalla, Burra, Bungendore, Queanbeyan, Majors Creek and many in Braidwood.
The gardens in the pedestrian refuge between the National Theatre and the Bakery have experienced some damage, and the garden will be re-designed to be suitable for their location. They will be designed with a clear walkway and suitable plants will then be planted around this walkway. This will be done in stages over the coming months to allow time for plants to settle into place.
Early morning swimming is available at the Braidwood Pool on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.30am-8am.
In response to recent queries, in the former Palerang Council area residents are still able to dispose of food scraps in their kitchen bench bin. The green waste conditions have not changed for residents within the Palerang region. Within the former Queanbeyan City Council area, the green waste bins are for the disposal of garden waste.
Ensuring residents of Queanbeyan-Palerang are up to date with council news is a priority of council. We now publish a weekly e-newsletter. Sign up for this newsletter is available at the former Queanbeyan City Council website http://www.qcc.nsw.gov.au/MailingListSubscribe.aspx. We hope to deliver a new website for the merged councils mid-2017.
