Member for Manly James Griffin said that he welcomed Transport for NSW’s decision to retain one Freshwater Class ferry, but is fighting to retain more than one of the historic boats.
“I was elected to fight for Manly. I’m determined to ensure we respect our history and retain another Freshwater ferry. That is why I’m fighting to retain more than one Freshwater Class ferry. The declining patronage on the Freshwater Class is not good enough reason to keep only one Freshwater Ferry,” Mr Griffin said.
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.
