Vote on projects for Mudgee region

The Mudgee community is being invited to help shortlist infrastructure projects for the region to be considered for funding through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund. 

The state government program was established to help deliver infrastructure projects across regional NSW. Its aim is to ‘improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work’.

According to the Mudgee Guardian, member for Dubbo Troy Grant announced that the Mid-Western Regional Council had secured $1.722 million in grant funding through the program. 

To ensure the right projects benefit from funding the council is inviting the community to list their top five major projects for the region via an online survey. 

A list of projects are available to choose from in the survey, having already been identified as part of community engagement to inform the Towards 2030 Community Plan and annual budget process.

Some of the potential projects in the online survey include walking and tourism trails, amenity improvements and public art investment among others.

Additional projects can be nominated for consideration by completing a separate application form. 

The survey is the community’s chance to help get the projects they want off the ground. If you want to have your say then you need to do so before 31 March 2018.

The survey, and further details, can be found on the Mid-Western Council website – http://www.midwestern.nsw.gov.au/community–recreation/stronger-country-community-grants/.

    Council to purchase the Regent Theatre in Mudgee from the current owner whi basically plans to destroy the historic stage and auditorium with the Regent. Council to establish it as a multi purpose arts centre. This includes cinema and performing arts. Council to provide a service to the community and a tourist attraction through revamping this unique historic building.

    I have written to Mid West Regional Council previously through the Community consultation strategic planning process.

    Acquiring and restoring Mudgee’s historic, iconic and nationally famous, Regent Theatre, as a versatile live entertainment venue for touring regional arts shows, travelling musical acts, comedians and variety artists, as well as as dance, drama and variety productions, social dances, special film screenings, private functions and community and charity fundraiser events. This theatre is the perfect size and location to boost tourism, training programmes and offer community entertainment for all age groups from youth music concerts through to classic film retrospectives for the senior aged groups.

    We need to save our Theatre, there could be so many thing that it could be used for not just movies. Live shows, musical theatre, concert, etc etc. so many uses and we would have plenty of tourists coming to see inside. Too many of these beautiful places have been pulled down. If you had a committee of volunteers, asking the community you would get plenty of ideas. There a plenty of other spaces for this motel/ hotel to be built but not in the centre of town PLEASE. Don’t spoil the landscape .

    I feel the Regent theatre is well worth the grant to help restore it and give it back to the towns people It will be a great draw card for the tourist to come see the old world of this beautiful theatre There is so many things that can be held there Like last weeks music bands all in one place out of the weather and people can sit and watch and enjoy there is no limit to the use
