The Woolgoolga Lake is a family friendly picnic area that is used by many in our community. There have been concerns for a few years about the state and management of the lake.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $20,000 to revegetate the banks of the lake with native plants and environmental stabilisation of the southern foreshore.
Mr Hogan said he attended a community meeting last year where residents raised concerns about the management of the lake.
“The Woolgoolga Lake Working Group supported by the Woolgoolga and Northern Beaches Chamber of Commerce and the Coffs Harbour City Council submitted an application for these works,” Mr Hogan said.
“There is a specific area requiring urgent and immediate attention due to erosion. This area is also a popular entry point, so this funding is crucial to ensure the longevity of the lake.”
“The revegetation on the banks of the lake will help manage erosion and the sustainability of the lake and surrounding areas.
“The Woolgoolga Lake is a place where people can enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and the abundance of birdlife and wildlife. This funding will ensure this can continue.”
