Funds for Hills community projects 

Five projects will receive part of $200,000 under the NSW government's 2013 Community Building Partnership program.

Baulkham Hills MP David Elliott said there was strong competition for the available funds with more than 2700 applications received across the state.

Projects to receive funding in Baulkham Hills include:

■ $23,000 for a new bus shelter at Crestwood Public School;

■ $14,550 for a new outdoor learning area and carport for 2nd Baulkham Hills Scouts;

■ $19,250 for a new storage facility for The Hills Rugby Union Club;

■ $123,550 for a new outdoor performance stage at Bella Vista Farm; and

■ $19,650 for new lighting at Northmead Bowling Club.

Mr Elliott said schools had been busy with maintenance and improvement projects with 11 projects in his electorate getting more than $510,000 of work done in the holidays.

These include:

■ Disabled access upgrades at Crestwood High School;

■ Stage and outdoor learning area repairs at Matthew Pearce Public School;

■ Installation of covered walkways at Winston Heights Public School; and

■ Tree removal and gurney repairs at Muirfield High School.

"In 2013/2014, $420 million of capital works funding is being invested in NSW public schools," he said.

Mr Elliott said the program would assist those most disadvantaged.
