Baulkham Hills Reserves Get Funding Boost

Almost $11,000 has been made available to treat weeds at two reserves thanks to a NSW Government Crown Reserves Improvement Fund grant.

Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott said that the funding would support the hard work of the Crown land manager.

“The grant will see weeds treated on a steep embankment at Eric Mobbs and Ted Horwood Reserves,” Mr Elliott said.

“It is great news to see a grant be made available to help maintain and preserve our local environment, to ensure our local community can continue to enjoy our great Crown lands.”

Minister for Lands and Forestry Paul Toole said the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund program was focussed on ensuring communities and visitors could continue to enjoy local land and facilities.

“This year we’ve made a record investment into Crown land with more than $20 million in grants and loans being provided across the state,” Mr Toole said.

To date, the NSW Government has invested $115 million across seven years into Crown land projects.

CRIF supports Crown reserve managers by providing funding for repairs and maintenance projects, pest and weed control, new recreational infrastructure and environmental initiatives.
