This section of paving in Charles Street, North Richmond was recently completed under the Federal Government funding to Hawkesbury Council.

A number of footpaths and roads around the Hawkesbury are set to improve in coming months as the council puts to use more than a million dollars in Federal Government community infrastructure funding.

Hawkesbury Council received $1.08 million to complete works at North Richmond, Freemans Reach, Hobartville, Richmond, Windsor, McGraths Hill, Mulgrave and Pitt Town.

The projects were selected for a variety of reasons, including the speed at which they could be achieved.

Council will consider separately a range of further projects as a second stage for longer term strategic projects.

It is hoped these projects will be prioritised and ready to begin in July 2021 or sooner following community consultation, said Hawkesbury Mayor, Council Patrick Conolly.

"We will use this unique 'one off' funding opportunity to benefit as many areas of the Hawkesbury as practicable, while also pursuing some longer term strategic benefits offered by this funding," he said.

"Regarding Stage 2 projects, council will aim for unique projects that will leave an enduring legacy.

"Once the Stage 2 projects have been determined, council will communicate with relevant local businesses about the upcoming opportunities to ensure that interested businesses will be ready to participate in any procurement process."
