Two Blue Mountains organisations will share in $57,000 to undertake maintenance thanks to the NSW Government’s Crown Reserves Improvement Fund.

Member of the Legislative Council and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard said the funding would support the hard work of local groups.

“The funding includes $27,000 to construct accessible hall facilities by widening and replacing entry gates and fencing at Mount Irvine Public Hall, to improve wheelchair access.

“There is also $30,000 for pest control of feral pigs near Megalong.”

Minister for Lands and Forestry Paul Toole said the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund program is focused 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.
