The Council has been successful in securing funding to improve tourism infrastructure for a further four sites.
In the latest round of the Tourism Infrastructure Fund the Council received funding for projects in West Melton, Rolleston, Lincoln and Sheffield, which are due to start in the coming months.
The funding will go towards an additional public toilet on the highway side the West Melton Reserve, a dump station in Rolleston for self-contained camper vans, upgrades of the Liffey public toilets in Lincoln and adding a toilet in the Sheffield Domain on State Highway 73.
The funding is timely to support the continued upgrade and additions to Selwyn’s tourism infrastructure as the country prepares for the return of international tourists and increasing numbers of Kiwi visitors, Council Community Projects Manager Cameron Warr says.
“In recent years we’ve been grateful to the ministry for supporting us in our ongoing upgrades of our tourism infrastructure. We want to make sure our visitors get to enjoy a great Selwyn experience and these projects will help us to do that – especially as we look forward to welcoming overseas tourists back into the region.”
Work is due to start in the coming weeks and be completed by the end of October.
