Campbelltown Leisure Centre funding refusal (SA)

East Torrens Messenger

Campbelltown Council has again missed out on Federal funding for the $17.5 million redevelopment of the Campbelltown Leisure Centre.

The council applied for a $7.5 million Regional Development Australia grant in May to help the Campbelltown Leisure Centre upgrade its court space for basketball, futsal, and volleyball, and add a 25m indoor heated pool, squash courts and fitness area.

The project hinged on the federal contribution to support the commitments of the council ($5 million) the State Government ($3 million) and State Swim and Squash SA ($1.5 million and $500,000 respectively).

In June 2010, the East Torrens Messenger reported the council had missed out on an application for $7.5 million in federal funding from the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program.
