BOOST FOR BUSHLAND AT CROMER

The NSW Government is investing more than $400,000 to improve a bushland reserve at Cromer, with better walking trails, new signage and enhanced viewing and seating areas.

Member for Wakehurst Brad Hazzard said the reserve, on Little Willandra Road, will be upgraded in partnership with Lane Cove Council.

“The beautiful bushland of our area makes the Northern Beaches a special place to live and raise a family, and this exciting project will protect and enhance a significant part of Cromer,” Mr Hazzard said.

“Everyone will be able to better enjoy the area with walking trails realigned. The project will ensure upgrades are sympathetic to the surrounding environment, and the community will be consulted about the reserve’s future recreational use.”

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the project will be delivered under the $16.5 million Greater Sydney Crown Land Open Space Activation Program, which helps activate government-owned Crown land to deliver more quality green, open public space.

“Crown lands can provide good quality green open space for the community whether that be the parkland reserves, foreshore precincts or public spaces,” Mr Stokes said.

“This program allows councils to work in partnership with Crown land managers to activate and revitalise land while creating local jobs at the same time.”
