$33,000 Crown Reserve Funding For Moruya Showground
Member for Bega Andrew Constance has announced that Eurobodalla Shire Council, as Crown Reserve Manager of the Moruya Showground, will receive $33,000 for upgrades.
Mr Constance said local Crown reserve managers, whether councils or community trusts do a fantastic job in looking after many of the public spaces that we all have the benefit of being able to access.
“We are so very fortunate to have those in our community that give their time to ensure our facilities and land are maintained and protected for future years,” Mr Constance said.
“Eurobodalla Shire Council will receive $33,000 in this funding round to complete upgrades at Moruya Showground.
“Local showgrounds are an asset in any community and following the works that will be undertaken at Moruya, it will be an even greater asset and more user friendly.
“Works include installation of a new sewerage dump point, construction a new livestock loading ramp and completion of an animal wash bay.
“The Showground will be a well resourced facility for users during events, which will assist in it becoming more viable and able to be better used,” Mr Constance said.
Minister for Lands and Forestry Paul Toole said the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund program was focussed on ensuring communities and visitors could continue to enjoy local land and facilities.
“This year we’ve made a record investment into Crown land with more than $20 million in grants and loans being provided across the state,” Mr Toole said.
To date, the NSW Government has invested $115 million across seven years into Crown land projects.
CRIF supports Crown reserve managers by providing funding for repairs and maintenance projects, pest and weed control, new recreational infrastructure and environmental initiatives.
