Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan today welcomed funding measures in the State Budget dedicated to addressing local issues for the Stateís fourth largest council.

The NSW Government announced it would allocate a further $13.1 million to reduce the frequency of flooding along Wakehurst Parkway, bringing total funding for that project to $18.1 million.

A comprehensive flood and ecological study was commissioned by Northern Beaches Council and funding for some of the recommendations has been discussed with the NSW Government over the last year.

“I would like to thank the State Government for its ongoing partnership in solving some of the issues facing the Wakehurst Parkway,” Cr Regan said.

“This extra funding will help improve access to the Northern Beaches Hospital, and will make a difference to the issues motorists face regularly on the Wakehurst Parkway following rain.

“Now we have more certainty around funding and what’s possible to deliver, we look forward to bringing details to the community.

“This is another great example of how state and local government partnerships can make a big difference to our community.”

Cr Regan said the Budget showed the Government had shown confidence in the work of local governments, supporting council to drive locally-led economic recovery following a devastating year of drought, bushfires and a global pandemic.
