Councils Australia-wide have submitted more than 100 examples of declining community infrastructure in need of replacement, maintenance or upgrades within about a week of ALGA's call out.
Proposals submitted to ALGA's Community Infrastructure Ideas Register demonstrate that there is a clear need for community infrastructure to be renewed. So far, examples of community infrastructure requiring renewal have included community recreational facilities such as ovals, swimming pools and walking paths, and community facilities such as halls, libraries and senior citizens centres.
ALGA is urging councils to continue to submit examples to support ALGA's case for Federal funding of $300 million per year over four years for a regional and community infrastructure fund.
Councils can submit their examples in the Community Infrastructure Ideas Register.
