Services to Leigh Creek

The State Government has announced it will continue to provide vital services to Leigh Creek, including the police station, school and hospital until at least June 2018.

Under the terms of its lease agreement with the State Government, Alinta must also maintain Leigh Creek – including services such as water and sewerage – until July 2018. This will also provide some certainty for surrounding communities such as Copley and Beltana, which rely on Leigh Creek for such services

Some residents in Leigh Creek and surrounding towns have also told us they would be interested in staying or moving into the town. As Alinta is currently responsible for providing housing, the State Government will work with the company on options.
