VideoWhy would you build a multi-million dollar hotel in Katanning? There are plenty of reasons to visit as we found out on our stay.

The Katanning All Ages Playground will be closed temporarily for renovation as part of the $15 million Welcome Precinct project, funded by Royalties for Regions, Lotterywest and the Shire of Katanning.

Work at the playground will begin in December and Shire chief executive Julian Murphy is on the hunt for a project contractor.

“The construction tender is now out to market and is due to close on November 14,” he said.

“After the tender period has closed, it is anticipated that council will consider and appoint a contractor to commence site works of the all ages playground/welcome precinct in December.”
