Camden residents are one step closer to seeing two brand new community facilities at Spring Farm and Gledswood Hills.
Council has now appointed two contractors to bring the projects to life.
HPAC Pty Ltd will deliver a new multipurpose community facility of approximately 500 square metres, at Richardson Road, Spring Farm.
The building will include activity hall, meeting room, foyer, kitchen, amenities and a car park with 26 spaces.
Construction on the $3 million project will start this month and is due to be complete late 2019, weather permitting.
In the second project, Hadizk Group Pty Ltd will deliver the new playground and landscaping at the corner of Duncombe Avenue and The Hermitage Way, Gledswood Hills.
The new neighbourhood playground area will include a variety of playground equipment.
A shade sail, large, central kick around area,
new landscaping and trees, shelter with two picnic settings, drinking fountain
and bench seating will also be provided as part of the project.
The $400,000 project will also start this month and is due to be complete late this year.
Newly elected Camden mayor, Cr Theresa Fedeli, pictured, said the two projects will be welcomed by the growing population in both areas.
“Gledswood Hills is home to more than 6,000 people and Spring Farm is home to more than 5,000,” Cr Fedeli said.
“We know these residents, many of whom are young families, need beautiful spaces to enjoy.
“So, we’re working hard to deliver this.
“When complete, the community facility and playground will provide creative and dynamic spaces for their respective communities, as well as residents all over the Camden area.”
