Laidley Cultural Centre to undergo $200,000 refurbishment

The Queensland government has put forward $200,000 for the refurbishment of the Laidley Cultural Centre.

The people of Lockyer Valley will soon be able to make use of an improved cultural centre, with the Queensland government putting $200,000 toward the refurbishment of the Laidley Cultural Centre.

The funding will help to deliver improvements to the entrance, function room and stairwell of the building.

Minister for Local Government Community Recovery and Resilience David Crisafulli made the funding announcement on July 18, with another $50,000 to also be set aside for the Lake Apex redevelopment.

This project will build additional car parking spaces and install 80 plastic bollards to prevent vandalism.

The flurry of redevelopment activity in the area could spark opportunities for those seeking apprenticeships in Queensland.

The funding was provided under the state government’s Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program, which Mr Crisafulli says is about building infrastructure in local communities and creating jobs.

“This must be the year of delivery for all levels of government and we’re making projects happen to help councils deliver a better lifestyle for their communities,” Mr Crisafulli said.

“There was a time only a few years ago when it would take nearly a year for the state government to call for applications and award funding for these types of projects. This year it has been completed in six weeks.”
