Make Wongala Estate Drain SAFE!
The open drain on Wongala Estate presents a hazard and a danger for our community especially our children. The open drain is really dangerous during periods of heavy rain as you can see and we need to do something about this. CH&D LALC have been involved in ongoing negotiations with CHCC about this issue since 2015. Coffs Harbour City Council (CHCC) have generously allowed a contribution of $100 000.00 to this project in order to make our community infrastructure (the drain) safer for everyone especially our children. CH&D LALC is trying to obtain funds to support CHCC’s upgrade of the open drain that runs through Wongala Estate. However, there is a $40 000.00 funding shortfall and CH&DLALC have committed to obtaining and contributing this amount. CH&D LALC is currently developing a submission to government for this amount, as we do not have sufficient financial resources available. A significant criteria for obtaining funds (whilst funding is not guaranteed) is an indication of the level of community support. This petition is needed to: Demonstrate Wongala’s community support for the upgrade to our existing drain which will make our community safer for our young ones andSupport for CH&D LALC to source and obtain funds that will assist CHCC’s delivery and completion of this much needed outcome.
