Manningham receives $235,000 grant for Doncaster Hill

29 Mar 2007

Manningham City Council has been awarded one of the largest grants from the State Government’s Creating Better Places program to fund stage one work on the Doncaster Hill Boulevard and Urban Space project. Manningham will receive $235,000 of the available $3 million offered this year by the program, which provides funding for projects that enhance public space and preserve valuable community facilities.

The money will contribute to the extension of the Doncaster Hill Boulevard streetscape treatment on the north side of Doncaster Road, from Doncaster Playhouse to the old Shire Hall. This work will create a distinctive identity and provide a vibrant pedestrian environment, thereby reaffirming the character of this area as an Arts/Heritage precinct.
