We are happy to advise that the Council has an approved budget for playground replacements in FY 2022/23 and Bawley Point has been chosen as one of the playgrounds to be replaced.
Thank you Shoalhaven City Council for allocating a budget of $175,000 to the project which will fund all costs associated with this replacement including planning, and project management.
In the coming weeks this project will progress to initial community consultation via a Get Involved Page on the Council’s website seeking information on the desired types of playground elements the community would like to see in the playground.
With the inclusion of our St Vincent’s de Paul $25,000 Bushfire Recovery Grant, our community can look forward to a new inclusive playground for all to enjoy!!
The BPKTCA will update the community when we receive further information.Bawley Point Reserve Playground Upgrade 2021 (2)
“Bawley Point, Kioloa and Termeil Community Association are pleased to announce that it has successfully applied for and been awarded the Vinnies NSW Community Bushfire Recovery Grant to the value of $25 000.
This money is to be put towards an upgrade of the Bawley Reserve Playground by May 2023.
Bawley playground was assessed by Council as having a specific safety issue which has now been remediated by Council with a temporary fix, pending a longer term redesign.
While the Vinnies’ grant will be a great boost, more funding will need to be raised in order to see both the Bawley Point and Kioloa playgrounds either upgraded or rebuilt. In relation to Kioloa playground, the Committee has received positive feedback from Council mentioning potential grant opportunities which we may apply for in the near term.
The Committee looks forward to working with the community towards a renewed play spaces for children of all ages.
We would also like to extend our thanks and gratitude to Vinnies for supporting our community.”
