The State Government has committed $5 million towards the City Centre Renewal.

The announcement in Warrnambool by Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford on June 3 completes the funding required to deliver Stage I and II of the City Centre Renewal.

In December last year the Federal Government committed $5 million towards the renewal while Council has also committed $5 million of ratepayer money towards the project.

“The $15 million investment is the single biggest project Council has undertaken within the city centre,” Council Chief Executive Officer Bruce Anson said.

“The outcome will be a city centre we can all be proud of and that meets expectations of the community in the 21st century.

“The 92ha city centre with its mix of retail, professional, education and health services is unique within the South West.

“Council has identified the renewal of the city centre as its number one priority and the $15 million in funding will allow for the retail heart to be transformed into a more accessible and inviting space.”
