Grant to continue waterway cleaning

The Clean4Shore program has received a $250,000 grant to continue cleaning local waterways.

This program, which aims to protect, enhance, rehabilitate or restore ecosystems and natural habitats, control or eradicate weeds and invasive species and conserve biological diversity, has been successful in helping maintain the overall health of local waterways, including lagoons, Brisbane Water and the Lower Hawkesbury River, according to Central Coast mayor Cr Jane Smith.

Cr Smith said the Council was pleased with the announcement of the grant by Federal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks, and welcomed the opportunity to continue its working relationship with Clean4Shore for the next three years.

"Our environment is a unique and delicate biological infrastructure requiring ongoing care and maintenance to ensure it long term health and prosperity," Clr Smith said.

"This program, with its focus on involving the community, including school students and local volunteers, not only helps deliver cleaner waterways but also provides ongoing education and training for locals invested in preserving our wonderful natural environment."

In addition to the program's focus on preserving the coastal waterways habitats, Clean4Shore actively promoted and recognised the role of indigenous people in conserving biological diversity, promoted and encouraged ecologically sustainable practices and facilitated adaptation to climate change, she said.

"Central Coast Council is committed to delivering a vibrant and sustainable community for all its residents and this funding announcement for the Clean4Shore program supports this vision," Cr Smith said.
