Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : December 24th 2008
4 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Monday, December 22, 2008 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Grant for Silverwater foreshore SILVERWATER Park foreshore will be upgraded with the help of a $80,250 grant, Auburn State Labor MP Barbara Perry said. Mrs Perry said the grant was funded under the Sharing Sydney Harbour Access Program, introduced in 2003 to further improve access to and enhance the recreational enjoyment of the harbour and its tributaries. ''Auburn Council will use this grant to upgrade Silverwater Park on the Parramatta River foreshore,'' Mrs Perry said. ''The work will include the construction of a concourse along the foreshore as well as additional picnic shelters, barbecues, mature-tree planting, bike racks and furniture.'' The improvements would provide a resting spot for pedestrians, cyclists and recreational boat users, Mrs Perry, who is also the Local Government Minister, said. ''The project will also improve connections between Olympic Park and the Duck River foreshore,'' she said. Applications for next year's Sharing Sydney Harbour Access Program grants would open early next year, Mrs Perry said.

The Watpac development, at 8 Australia Ave, will have five levels of office space, ground-floor retail space and basement car parking. The development will create the equivalent of about 150 full-time jobs and, when it is completed in October 2009, it will house about 400 workers. The building has been regis- tered for a green star office design rating with the Green Building Council of Australia. Sydney Olympic Park is now home to more than 60 businesses, including the Commonwealth Bank, Samsung, Dairy Farmers, Acer and Fujitsu. Recently completed buildings include the two-star Formule 1 Hotel, the five-star Pullman Hotel and three commercial buildings for the Commonwealth Bank. *WITH THIS ISSUE ONLY ✽ BUMPER ISSUE FREE 2009 calendar* Over 50 Specialty Stores, FREE 3 hour shopper carparking 42 - 50 Railway Parade, Burwood.
