Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today welcomed the announcement of more than $13,000 of funding to help Coffs Harbour City Council to better understand and manage flood risk.
“This grant will allow the council to investigate options to improve evacuation access for residents of the Sunset Caravan Park which is part of the recently adopted Woolgoolga Floodplain Risk Management Plan,” he said.
“This funding will help our community better prepare for any future flood.
“We have all seen the damage done to communities and people’s lives in recent flooding on the North Coast so it is imperative that the Government provides all the help we can to protect our communities in the future.
The funding is provided through the Floodplain Grants Scheme which is jointly funded by the Federal and State governments.
