The NSW Government has committed more than $10,000 to upgrade Lake Parramatta Reserve.
Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott said that under the latest round of the Public Reserves Management Fund Program (PRMF), the NSW Government has allocated over
$5 million in funding for showground maintenance and weed and pest control across the State.
“Public reserves are wonderful assets that are highly valued by local communities and are vital to the success of local sports, social clubs, business and tourism,” Mr Elliott said.
Liberal candidate for Seven Hills Councillor Mark Taylor said the PRMF provides vital funding for improvements, maintenance and protection of Crown Land reserves in NSW, ranging from bushfire control to weed and pest management on public reserves.
“The NSW Government’s commitment to provide funding for pest and weed management on Crown Reserves will result in better outcomes for the community and help to protect high conservation value areas throughout Seven Hills,” Cr Taylor said.
“This funding will allow new work to be done to minimise the risk of spreading high-risk noxious weeds to new areas around the region, which is a win for our local communities and a win for the environment.”
Minister for Natural Resources, Lands and Water Kevin Humphries encouraged all eligible reserve trust boards responsible for Crown land sites in the Hills to apply for
PRMF funding when the next round opens in August.
“The PRMF is just one example of the NSW Government’s commitment to the cultural,
sporting, environmental, economic and recreational life of communities across NSW,” Mr Humphries said.
