No community development grants for the Peninsula

Central Coast Council approved more than $266,000 in community development grants for non-profit organisations across the region last week, but none were awarded to the Peninsula.

An application from Peninsula Village for "Getting out and about in the Community: Triobike Taxi Project" was knocked back.

The aged care home asked for money to purchase a Triobike Taxi to transport Peninsula Village residents around the community.

It was "not recommended for funding as currently proposed, as insufficient information is provided to make an accurate assessment".

"Recommend applicant liaise with Council grants officers and consider resubmitting in a subsequent round."

The Crommelin Native Arboretum was also knocked back for its request to replace a bridge "in advance deterioration".

The group was told it was ineligible as it was "works to

buildings or property".

Mingaletta Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation applied for money for its "Healing of the Spirit" project, bringing groups together as one and sharing their knowledge of cultural learning and teaching their next generation of people.

The group was told it was ineligible because it did not "complete and return an acquittal report by dates agreed in their Funding Agreement" and would be ineligible for any future funding.

However, two local groups received community support grants amounting to just over $6000, from a pool of about $28,000.

The Bays Community Group received a 50 per cent rates subsidy for 2021-2022 valued at $1134.95 for eligible rates.

"Community benefit is demonstrated, and all required information is provided," the application assessment stated.

Woy Woy Rugby League Football Club was granted $5000 for speakers to upgrade the sound system at Woy Woy oval grandstand and club house "to give the stand a broader range of coverage and clarity".

The grant was conditional on the equipment remaining available to all users of the facility as an asset of the facility.
