Shelley Hancock – Minister for Local Government

Sunday, 24 November 2019

The NSW Government today announced a $50,000 grant to Narromine Shire Council for a creative co-working space to help entrepreneurs and businesses connect and grow.

Minister for Local Government Shelley Hancock today visited Narromine with Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders to inspect the proposed site of the new HubnSpoke facility.

“The NSW Government is committed to backing our regional cities as hubs for employment, economic activity and innovation,” Mrs Hancock said.

“With the challenges presented by the worsening drought, our regional councils need our support more than ever to continue to deliver for their communities.

“The HubnSpoke facility will provide an affordable, flexible and creative work space and encourage innovation and collaboration for start-ups, entrepreneurs and businesses.”

Mr Saunders said he is looking forward to seeing the transformation of the Burraway Street building into HubnSpoke Narromine.

“Quite a few of our towns and cities in regional NSW are enjoying the benefits of coworking spaces and I am delighted that Narromine will shortly join this growing trend,” Mr Saunders said.

“The premises would cater to a minimum of 12 users at any time with semi-permanent and hot desk workstations and access to Wi-Fi, a meeting room, kitchen facilities, private courtyard as well as creative workshops and professional networking events.

“The NSW Government is committed to helping our regional councils provide quality infrastructure, facilities and services for their residents.”
