$15 MILLION UP FOR GRABS TO IMPROVE LOCAL CROWN RESERVES

Monday, 20 February 2017

 

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is urging local Crown Reserve Trust Managers to submit their applications for $15 million in funding being made available under the popular Public Reserves Management Fund (PRMF).

 

Mr Marshall said grants were available under the PRMF for a range of upgrade or maintenance projects to Crown reserves, including caravan parks, local parks and reserves, sporting fields, State parks and showgrounds.

 

“Public reserves play a crucial role in improving the social, economic, environmental and recreational outcomes across the Northern Tablelands,” he said.

 

“Under this program managers can apply for funding for projects such as building maintenance and repairs, upgrading amenities or completely new facilities.

 

“These funds help ensure our local showgrounds, camping grounds, sporting fields, walking tracks and local parks are in good order.”

 

Last year, the region secured more than $500,000 from the PRMF for a wide range of improvement projects, including at the Moree Showground, Guyra War Memorial Hall, Inverell Motorsport Complex, Nullamanna and Myall Creek Public Halls, Boomi Sportsground, Hillgrove Hall, Tingha Caravan Park, Warialda Racecourse, Glencoe Sport & Recreation Ground and Dundee Community Centre.

 

Applications for the 2017/18 Public Reserves Management Fund Program are now and close Friday, 24 March 2017.

 

Information on how to apply is available on the Department of Industry – Lands website www.crownland.nsw.gov.au/crown_lands/crown_reserves/funding/PRMFP
