The environment we live in is one of the big winners out of this year’s annual budget.

Kempsey Shire Council has budgeted $31.6 million for works to improve our natural and built environment in the next year including:

  • Preparing an updated Coastal Management Program to manage and improve the health of our estuaries, foreshores and wetlands
  • Working with residents to manage high priority weeds and pest species
  • Flood risk management planning for the Kempsey CBD and Lower Macleay
  • Planning for sustainable land use and development, for example, South West Rocks Structure Plan
