Riverbank Funding

The Swan and Canning rivers will both benefit from $2 million as part of the Riverbank Funding.

As part of the 2016 - 2017 Riverbank Funding, 13 projects across 10 local councils will share nearly $1 million. 

An additional $1million will go towards priority projects that are being negotiated with local councils. Two of those projects are at Southern River (City of Gosnells) and Woodbridge Riverside Park (City of Swan). Riverbank Funding is a joint venture between the State Government and local councils with the aim of protecting the long term future of the Swan and Canning rivers.  It focuses on protecting foreshores and infrastructure and improving the environment and public amenity of the rivers. 

Current projects include foreshore restoration works, revegetation, weed and erosion control and river wall construction.  At Lilac Hill Park in Guildford, the City of Swan will use $22,375 towards revegetating 600m of river bank to create a 2.3km foreshore wildlife corridor. This will make it one of the largest restablished foreshore wildlife corridors along the Swan and Canning rivers.
