Member for Manly, James Griffin has welcomed the start of preliminary work to redevelop Manly Cove West, which includes the former Sea Life building (Manly Aquarium).
Mr Griffin said the early works will comprise site investigations in the water, around the existing boardwalk and within the former Sea Life building itself. For a few days, the work will include concrete core drilling.
“Sea level and coastal studies will also be undertaken to understand the impacts on the Manly West Esplanade beach following the planned demolition of the former Sea Life building,” Mr Griffin said.
Following concerns raised by Manly MP, James Griffin over the future funding of Seaforth’s Dalwood Spilstead Service, there’s been a welcome breakthrough.
Mr Griffin said the Early Intervention and Support Service is globally recognised for its outstanding provision of multidisciplinary health, education and support services for families with difficulties in caring and parenting their children during the early years.
“Although there will be funding changes, I welcome news that the North Sydney Local Health District’s recurrent funding is to continue and will not be withdrawn,” Mr Griffin said.
NSW Surf Life Saving Clubs are encouraged to apply for their share of $5.25 million in funding for the upgrade, restoration, or construction of facilities across the Manly electorate.
Member for Manly, James Griffin said applications are now open for the Surf Club Facility Program with grants of up to $1 million up for grabs.
“We already know we are in for a hot Spring and Summer, and it is critical our Surf Life Saving Clubs are prepared to protect the influx of beach goers in the coming months,” Mr Griffin said.
