Crown Land Managers across the Myall Lakes are now able to apply for their share of $16 million in funding to maintain and improve Crown land reserves for community use.

Member for Myall Lakes, Tanya Thompson said applications for the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund are officially open until November 17.

“This funding is essential to look after and improve community, recreational and tourism facilities, and I would strongly encourage eligible organisations to come forward,” Mrs Thompson said.

“There is $14 million worth of grants and $2 million in loans on offer, which could go a long way to fund essential projects across our region.”

“Thanks to the former Coalition Government, several projects were completed in the Myall Lakes through the fund, including solar lighting in the carpark at the Coomba Park Foreshore Reserve, repairs and upgrades to the drainage systems, roadways and paths at the Bulahdelah Showground and a new shed for Taree Showground.”

All Crown Land Managers can apply including local councils, community organisations, and user groups that are licensed to use Crown reserves across the Myall Lakes electorate, as well as commons and showgrounds on freehold land.
