This Project is an initiative delivered by Coffs Harbour City Council, as part of the Bushfire Recovery Grants Program, funded by the Commonwealth through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangement. Fire affected Landholders in the Coffs Harbour LGA are now able to get support through this project to carry out Environmental Recovery actions on their property. Coffs Harbour Regional Landcare, Orara Valley Rivercare Groups and Envite Environment have been engaged by Coffs Council to manage these Environmental Recovery efforts.
The bushfires that occurred in the Coffs Harbour LGA in November had a significant impact on the local biodiversity across a number of areas. The loss of vegetation in these fire affected areas has had significant impact on the local wildlife. This Project aims to support fire affected landholders to carry out environmental recovery actions on their properties to restore native vegetation that was lost in the fires and protect the remaining remnant vegetation to provide refuge and habitat for displaced wildlife.
If you are a landholder whose property was affected by fire and would like support with Environmental Recovery actions please fill in the Expression of Interest Form below.
Please complete the form by September 20th 2020. We will then contact you in late September 2020 regarding your Expression of Interest.
If you have any questions please contact Samantha Hessey at Samantha.Hessey@chcc.nsw.gov.au or 0407849 439.
