More Funds for NSW Dredging Projects

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC has just announced that coastal councils can apply for NSW Government funding for essential dredging projects under the “Rescuing Our Waterways” program.

According to Mr MacDonald, the State Government recently announced an additional $6 million over four years for the program, as part of the NSW Coastal Dredging Strategy.

This funding will help improve the accessibility, health and safety of our regional waterways for recreational and commercial vessels,” Mr MacDonald said. “Rescuing Our Waterways is delivered in partnership between State Government and councils.

Mr MacDonald added that this program has already benefited a number of communities along the coast, improving access to local waterways.

I encourage local councils to find out more about this fantastic initiative to ensure our community continues to enjoy our coastal harbors and rivers,” Mr MacDonald said.

Councils can apply for up to 50 per cent of the cost of a project. Applications for the program will close 23 June 2017.
