Our iconic Urunga Boardwalk is soon to be upgraded following today’s announcement that Council has successfully secured $3.96M in funding from Round Two of the NSW Government’s Regional Tourism Activation Fund.
The renewal of the boardwalk will also allow improved access for those with mobility issues and require a wheelchair or other assistance and help bring to life Council's Inclusive Tourism Strategy and Disability Inclusion Action Plan. The boardwalk will use sustainable, recycled materials which also aligns to Council's sustainability practices as we continue to focus on becoming an Eco Certified destination.
Mayor, Cr Steve Allan expressed his gratitude for the work done to date and application process to secure the funding that will inject life into this project. “It is an important step towards making our region even more accessible and welcoming, not just for visitors but also our local community who spend time down on the waterfront with friends and family.”
The project will support increasing our Shire’s visitation as well as boost local economies and local jobs as more people spend time in our Shire exploring the many places and local businesses we have to offer.
A project page will be established on Council’s website where information on the project will be made available, and updates provided through our social media channels.
