It’s going to be an exciting 12 months for the Orara Valley community as the long awaited cricket pitch upgrade, playground and amenities projects come to fruition.

Last week, earthworks started on the oval to install a second cricket pitch.

The Orara Valley Progress Association will be working closely with Coffs Harbour City Council to finalise the design for the community playground, landscaping, shade trees, car park and connecting pathways.

While no date has been set for completion of the works, Section Leader Asset Strategies at Coffs Harbour City Council, Rebecca Doblo, said the projects can be expected over the coming financial year.

“It’s a lovely project and the community is so switched on and positive about it, it’s great to see,” she said.

The Orara Valley Progress Association worked hard to secure $205,000 in Federal Government funding for the playground.

An additional $400,000 from developer contributions will be spent mostly on public amenities and storage for the Nana Glen Cricket Club.

President of the Orara Valley Progress Association Steph Luck said they’re excited to see works starting in the Valley.

”We look forward to working with Council to finalise the plans for the playground,” she said.
