loddon focusesAn increase in funding will see the shire deliver a large number of projects to communities within the ward.

The Loddon Shire Council is focusing on community planning this financial year and is encouraging communities to think strategically about their future, and how they would like to see their town and district grow and prosper.
The councils vision to have a vibrant, welcoming and connected community which looks back on its past with pride and looks forward to a strong and prosperous future has seen them increase the Community Planning Strategic Fund from $100,000 to $200,000 this year.
Appropriate infrastructure will be established in the shire by encouraging communities to think comprehensively about their own vision, to plan thoroughly recognise what's happening in the wider region.
This financial year thirty-three projects will be delivered within the shire, from a $562,000 budget.
Works includes a heritage lamp and barbecue at Eddington, re-stumping, heating and cooling of the Laanecoorie Hall and improvements to the Brownbill Reserve, new computers for the Tarnagulla Community Centre, a contribution to the Newbridge solar power project and streetscape improvement works at the northern end of Bridgewater.
The Powlett Hall will have its roof replaced and works to restore the Fincham organ at St. Augustines in Inglewood will commence. The Inglewood Town Hall receives a second seed funding allocation from the Kooyoora Ward, and community members have been given support for a local weed eradication program.
The kids at Calivil will be able to play under a new shade-sail over the playground while the Winzar Recreation Reserve in Dingee will receive a new cricket pavilion, ride on mower and purchase of water right. Improving access at the Pyramid Hill Memorial Hall is a large project in the Terricks Ward, as well resurfacing of netball courts in both Pyramid Hill and Serpentine is on the agenda.
The Boort Eastern Entry Project Stage 3 is top of the list for the Boort,  Boort Park will receive new lighting and the croquet club will renovate their kitchen and the golf club will receive a new ride-on mower. Community planning will contribute to the BRIC solar project, support for the development committee and historical society on their projects, and the Memorial Hall, with renovations now complete, will get a new coat of paint along with the adjacent RSL Hall.
