Greymouth Town Square

In 2011 DWC provided each of the three district councils with a oneoff $2 million Extraordinary Distribution Fund (EDF), enabling each West Coast district council to fund community assets and projects that would boost their local economy. 

Funds have been allocated to diverse projects, including the Westland Recreation Centre in Greymouth, housing for medical staff in Karamea, extensions and earthquake strengthening for a Westport retirement home, cycle trails in Westland and Buller and a new swimming pool liner in Blackball.
