More funding to improve public reserves in Myall Lakes
Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead and Minister for Lands Niall Blair have announced the NSW Government will invest more than $1.304 million to support the development, maintenance and improvement of public reserves across the Great Lakes and Manning districts.
Mr Bromhead said many public reserves across Myall Lakes will be given a facelift to ensure they remain at the heart of the community.
“Public reserves provide social and economic focal points for our local communities by providing halls for meetings and social activities, sportsgrounds, showgrounds, holiday parks, state parks, heritage sites, nature reserves, walking tracks and recreational reserves,” Mr Bromhead said.
“This funding is so important for the managers of these important assets as it allows improvements to be made that will continue to benefit the community now and into the future.
“By supporting these vital projects the NSW Government is supporting the role our professional and volunteer managers of Crown reserves play in the ongoing management of the Crown reserve system,” Mr Bromhead said
Mr Blair said that nearly $17 million from the Public Reserves Management Fund will be invested right across the state to improve our public reserves.
“We have 700 reserves, which are looked after by volunteers, who help care for a wide range of facilities and I am proud the NSW Government is supporting these reserves that are often the backbone to our local communities,” Mr Blair said.
