Councils in the Northern Beaches can sign up for a share of $1.3 million in NSW Government funding to deliver free events, activities or experiences to enliven local public spaces this summer.
James Griffin, Member for Manly said grants of up to $10,000 were available through the Festival of Place Summer Fun (d) program to activate the community and encourage people to stay local.
New green life will be breathed into the Northern Beaches after securing funding from a NSW Government program for councils to plant more than 40,000 trees and deliver environmental innovation projects.
The Greening Our City program will provide $10 million in grants to 30 councils and two partner organisations across two funding streams- Cooler Suburbs and Green Innovations.
Member for Manly, James Griffin said the program supports the Premier’s Priority to increase the tree canopy and green cover across Greater Sydney by planting one million trees by 2022.
From December 1, Level 1 water restrictions for Northern Beaches’ households will be lifted and replaced with Water Wise Guidelines.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey said Greater Sydney has done a great job saving water during one of the worst droughts on record.
