Cam­paspe $200K up­grade

The Riverine Herald - - GAME ON SUMMER -

THE Vic­to­rian Govern­ment will spend $200,000 im­prov­ing vis­i­tor fa­cil­i­ties and recre­ation at Cam­paspe River as part of a new ini­tia­tive to im­prove Vic­to­ria’s wa­ter­ways.

Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria Mark Gepp an­nounced the project would be de­liv­ered by North Cen­tral Catch­ment Man­age­ment Au­thor­ity in part­ner­ship with Cam­paspe Shire to en­hance recre­ation ac­cess for the com­mu­nity.

This in­cludes a new river ac­cess plat­form to sup­port recre­ational fish­ing and ac­cess for wa­ter sports.

“This fund­ing will help im­prove Cam­paspe River so it can thrive and be en­joyed as a nat­u­ral trea­sure for many years to come,’’ Mr Gepp said.

“It’s about recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance this site is to the peo­ple of the Cam­paspe re­gion and the ben­e­fits it pro­vides to the com­mu­nity.”

The project is part of the La­bor Govern­ment’s $3.2 mil­lion Boost­ing Recre­ational Wa­ter Use Ini­tia­tive (BRWUI).

The govern­ment said plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment for all projects would be in part­ner­ship with recre­ational users, lo­cal com­mu­nity mem­bers, Abo­rig­i­nal Vic­to­ri­ans, tra­di­tional own­ers and other key stake­hold­ers, prior to de­liv­ery of on-ground works.
