The Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment is set to go ahead, thanks to funding of $120 million included in the 2017/18 NSW Budget.

“The NSW Government is delivering on its 2015 election commitments for Goulburn,” Goulburn MP Pru Goward said yesterday.

“The allocation of funds for the Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment in this year’s budget means we are now able to complete the detailed design works and put the project to tender in the immediate future.

The planning application will also be submitted in 2017 and since this is a State Significant development application it will also involve the public exhibition of plans and a formal public submission process.

“Once the tender has been approved, we expect demolition work to get underway early in the new year and construction and commencement by mid to late 2018.” said Goulburn MP, Pru Goward.
