Community halls improvement program

Community halls are the heart of many of our MidCoast communities.

They are where people come together and communities grow. They are a place for gatherings, celebrations, learning and support.

A large investment is being made in improving these facilities for our community, with projects underway, or scheduled, for many of the community halls across the MidCoast.

Our community halls played an incredibly important role during the 2019 black summer bushfire disaster. We saw them provide a focal point for communities to come together to get through the devastation of the event, and to gain support in the aftermath.

As a result, we have invested $1.2 million of Australian Government funding allocated to MidCoast Council into 50 of our community halls, to assist them to continue to be important hubs for their community.

Works being undertaken as part of this funding package include things like electrical upgrades, the supply of generators and reliable water supplies to the 50 halls.

We are working with the hall committees and communities in these areas to determine priorities, in line with the funding agreement, and will be delivering these upgrades over the coming year.
