FUNDING TO HELP PEEL
APPLICATIONS are open for funding under round 2 of the Building Better Regions Fund. Canning MHR Andrew Hastie said the Peel region had already benefited from round one, with $3 million delivered towards the Shire of Murray’s Dwellingup Trails Hub and Quarmbie Park’s Waroona Housing Options Village. “Job creation is a priority and this program will bring local jobs for local residents,’’ he said. “It will deliver jobs in construction, tourism and health care and boost local business.” Mr Hastie said he was pleased more rural towns in the Peel region were eligible in round 2. “This decision recognises the rural character of the Peel region,’’ he said.
