Baulkham Hills MP David Elliott has successfully applied for partial funding of a proposed stage at Bella Vista Farm Park.
Premier Barry O’Farrell has approved up to $123,550 worth of funding for the stage, expected to cost about $500,000.
The Hills mayor Michelle Byrne thanked Mr Elliott.
“We’re happy to finally have approval from the NSW Heritage Council for the construction of this stage," Cr Byrne said.
"It will attract more performing arts to Bella Vista Farm Park and more visitors to the Sydney Hills.”
