Grant fund opportunity for footpaths

Member for The Entrance, David Mehan, is encouraging Central Coast Council to apply for State Government funding currently open under the Community Building Partnership (CBP) Grant Program to extend the footpath in Brooke Ave, Killarney Vale.

David Mehan accepts the footpath petition from a group of Brooke Avenue residents

EACH year CBP funding provides opportunities for not-for-profit community organisations and local councils to apply for grants of between $5,000 and $150,000.

 

Extending the footpath along Brooke Avenue, Killarney Vale has long been an overdue project that local resident and disability advocate, Maria Pyros, has been agitating for many years on behalf of the community.

 

Back in November 2020, Ms Pyros obtained at least 500 signatures on a petition calling on Council to extend the footpath from the Yangoora Street intersection to Wyong Road. This footpath is listed under the Central Coast Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan and under the CBP program Council could apply and only be required to meet half its cost.

 

David Mehan said, “This annual grant funding is a great opportunity for improvements to be made in and around our community.”

 

“The program closes this Friday, 10 June and should Council apply for a grant to fund this footpath, I would support their application.”
