Robyn Clarke delivers on promises with town revitalisation funding

Murray-Wellington MP Robyn Clarke and Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan have announced the delivery of two WA Labor election commitments for the Shire of Murray.

Mrs Clarke and Ms MacTiernan met with the Shire and local residents of Dwellingup and Pinjarra in August to announce a $200,000 grant for the Dwellingup Town Square Redevelopment and a $100,000 grant to assist funding the Pinjarra Town Centre Revitalisation Plan.

The funding was promised as part of the WA Labor’s Plan for Peel document.

“After meeting with the Shire of Murray and the people of Dwellingup throughout the election campaign it was clear that these two projects were well-deserving of funding,” Mrs Clarke said.

“Both town sites have incredible historical value and these redevelopment projects will ensure that this is preserved, whilst also making them more attractive to tourism.

“The people of Dwellingup made their request clear – and I listened and delivered.”

The Dwellingup Town Square Development is part of a larger plan to transform Dwellingup into a tourist town of national significance.

The Pinjarra Town Centre Revitalisation Plan has been developed to ensure that future growth in the town improves business, education, employment, housing and lifestyle opportunities for the community without tarnishing the town’s heritage and character.

Labor’s Plan for Peel also includes $100,000 to repair and upgrade the Waroona Community Men’s Shed and a contribution of $100,000 towards the purchase of mini-bus for use in the Shire of Murray.
