Identified Damage - Community Assets

Community Assets

An application to release funds to support the reinstatement of community assets which were not covered by insurance, or eligible under category B (essential public infrastructure) claim was approved by the Premier and Prime Minister in September 2017.

The total funding released through this category to Southern Grampians Shire Council was $2.02 million (including two positions to support project delivery)

Six major projects were listed for approval including:

Project Status
Bryans Creek (Coleraine) & Settlers Walk (Cavendish) walking tracks Works completed
Coleraine Bowling Club Rooms Works underway
Coleraine-Hamilton Rail Trail Works underway
Lake Hamilton/Grangeburn walking track Works completed
Coleraine Tennis/Netball Court repair (note part insurance funded) Works underway
Dunkeld Walking Track Works completed

Approval was also received for a number of minor grants to support projects such as replacing flood damaged equipment at Coleraine Cricket Club and reinstating fencing surrounding the Turnbull Street Oval.

Insurance repairs

The insurance claim for damage is expected to be approximately $1 million across a number of facilities. Much of this work has now been completed.

Some of the larger Projects included:-

  • Restoration of the Sylvester Oval Netball Courts due to flood damage to their surface and foundations;
  • Replacement of under felt and bowling green at the Coleraine Bowling Club;
  • Replacement of the flood damaged septic system at the Cavendish Kindergarten
  • Extensive repairs to the Coleraine Caravan Park
