Jason Falinski has today announced that the Liberal Government will meet the funding shortfall of $1.9 million for the redevelopments of the Long Reef Surf Club (SLSC) and community facilities.


Member for Mackellar Jason Falinski said the $1.9 million now means the project finally has the green light to go ahead.


"10 years ago this project came before Council. I’m pleased to say, now, after 10 long years all funds are in place and construction can now begin.


"The ball is now in Northern Beaches Council court to start the works," Mr Falinski said. 


Long Reef SLSC Vice President Rob Pearson welcomed the funding which will reinvigorate the clubhouse and community facilities at the site.


"On behalf of our President Peter Kinsey, our Management Committee, members and friends of Long Reef SLSC I would like to officially thank the Federal Government for the wonderful contribution they have made to make our project a fully funded reality.


“The new facilities will be a magnificent asset that recognises and supports volunteer surf life savers and provides great long term benefits for the wider community,” Mr Pearson said.
