Iluka flush with government's Crown Reserve grant

ILUKA has been the biggest winner in the latest round of NSW Government Crown Reserve grants.

The coastal town picked up $84,000 to upgrade public toilets and carry out environmental work near the beach.

Overall the government allocated nearly $200,000 to improve public facilities on 12 Crown Reserves in the Clarence and Richmond valleys.

Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis said while Iluka had attracted the biggest grant, smaller amounts would still have a positive effect in communities.

"This recognises the value of the work carried out by our volunteers in helping local communities become stronger. These direct grants deliver great value for the taxpayer," Mr Gulaptis said.

Casino, Evans Head and Ellangowan were also successful in winning grants.

Mr Gulaptis congratulated the volunteers from all the successful applicants.
