Applications are open for the latest round of the NSW Government’s Metropolitan Greenspace Program, with Councils across Greater Sydney and the Central Coast encouraged to apply for their share of $3.85 million in funding.
Member for Manly James Griffin said investment in local green spaces will serve the community for generations to come.
“From pedestrian and cycle pathways to new and upgraded parks, this funding will support the delivery of projects that make our neighbourhoods more enjoyable places to live,” Mr Griffin said.
Manly students and families will benefit from upgraded educational facilities at Manly Village Public School, with master planning now under way.
The planning process will incorporate space currently used by Community Northern Beaches, review existing facilities and consider local population projections to inform the scope of works and a timeline for delivery.
Community groups, businesses and Northern Beaches Council are being invited to apply for a share of $12.5 million in funding from the NSW Government to support increased local tree canopy cover and innovative tree planting projects.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the funding will help councils and communities enhance their tree planting activities in streets, parks and plazas.
“Our experience during the COVID-19 pandemic has shown how much we treasure our quality green, open and public spaces,” Mr Griffin said.
