Member for Lane Cove Anthony Roberts congratulated Hunter’s Hill Council for securing $76,000 in funding under the Coastal and Estuary Grant Program to provide the lifeline needed to address biodiversity and regeneration works around Boronia Park, Riverglade Reserve and Kelly’s Bush.

Mr Roberts said the grant was among 34 set to have major benefits for coastal communities, ensuring the long-term management of valuable natural resources in NSW.

“Whether countering erosion, improving access, removing invasive weeds or implementing environmental monitoring programs, councils can’t do it alone,” Mr Roberts said.

“The NSW Government is committed to empowering local government to address and manage these important environments with their communities.”

Minister for Local Government Shelley Hancock said the NSW Government is focused on delivering technical know-how to councils.

“Sydney’s world-famous coastline is one of the state’s most valuable natural assets, providing a dynamic and diverse landscape with unique natural features, values and resources that need the best care and management,” Mrs Hancock said.

“We will continue to work in partnership with councils and local communities to manage the coast which is home to nearly 85 per cent of our population.”

These grants are in addition to the 207 grants totaling $43.14 million awarded since 2016-17 under the Coastal and Estuary Grants program.

Councils are still able to apply for grants each year around July and August thanks to the NSW Government recently passing the Coastal Management Amendment Act 2021 which has extended the deadline for Coastal Zone Management Plans to December 2023.

The program is funded under the NSW Government’s $83.6 million commitment towards improving the management of our state’s coastline.
