Wicks urges Council to apply for Umina oval lighting

Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks has come out in support of lighting in the recreation precinct of Umina Oval.

She has urged Central Coast Council to apply immediately for Federal funding to install lighting in the precinct.

Ms Wicks said the local community has identified security lighting as a significant need for the area.

She said time was of the essence as applications had opened for round three of the Safer Communities Fund.

"The program delivers on the Coalition's ongoing commitment to keep Australians safe and secure," Ms Wicks said.

She said Central Coast Council or community organisations could apply for a share of up to $1 million in funding through the fund.

The funding is available for initiatives such as CCTV, bollards, lighting and other crime prevention infrastructure.

"Our region has been very successful under this program.

"In previous rounds we have delivered funding for CCTV cameras at McEvoy Oval at Umina and to provide additional cameras at the Peninsula Recreation Precinct.

"We know that there is more to do to keep our local families and businesses safe, so I am delighted to announce this new round of funding.

"I will be advocating for Central Coast Council to consider projects such as lighting at the Peninsula Recreation Precinct."

As well as the infrastructure stream, the third round includes a separate early intervention stream for community organisations to deliver crime prevention or activity based youth engagement projects.

Applications for the infrastructure stream close on September 25.

Information on how to apply for funding is available on the Australian Government's Safer Communities Fund - Infrastructure Stream website at, or by calling 13 2846.
