Community events granted $42,000

Community events including festivals on the Peninsula have been allocated about $42,000 in the latest round of Central Coast Council's grants program.

Other grants brought the total for the Peninsula and surrounds to $68,728.

This was part of a total allocation of $486,603.55 in grants across the region made by the Council at its June 9 meeting.

Peninsula Chamber of Commerce will receive $14,045 for the Brisbane Water Oyster Festival as well as $14,850 for Ettalong Jazz Festival.

Peninsula Tourism Partners will get $12,773 to stage the fifth annual Red Carpet Day at Ettalong Beach.

Maximum Adventure Pty Ltd will also get $19,900 for its Bouddi Coastal Trail Run.

The Council's Sponsorship Review Panel recommended funding for this event "as it provides community benefit, will attract visitors out-of-region, activating place, as well as providing exposure and positively profiling the region".

An application for a writers' festival, Words on the Waves, to be held on the Peninsula was deferred until the next grants round.

It was described as "a literary festival for schools and community, including the establishment of festival infrastructure, website, writers' workshops and two ticketed author events".

The Killcare Wagstaffe Trust will receive $7160 for The Gully project, a professional regeneration of the bitou-infested gully adjacent a main access pathway to Putty Beach foreshore.

An application by Peninsula Villages Ltd for a TrioBike Taxi project was not funded.

It was recommended that the applicant "confirm requirements for application to be assessed in a subsequent round" of funding.

The assessment was that the "project has merit but limited funds are available".

An application from the Patonga Beach Progress Association for a kitchen upgrade to its community hall received a similar response.

The community grants program aims to support a variety of projects which improve community infrastructure and services and provide initiatives and programs that benefit the community.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said: "I am looking forward to seeing these projects come to fruition and being enjoyed by residents and visitors," she said.

Information about funding programs available to community projects is available through Grant Finder at
