Council has secured $30,000 funding from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) Flying-fox Grants Program and is supplementing this with $20,000 Council funding to provide assistance to owners and residents of eligible properties located within 50 metres of the Avalon and Balgowlah flying-fox camps.

The Northern Beaches Flying-fox Residents Assistance Program will provide funding of up to $2,000 (GST inc.) for items and services that will assist owners and residents in managing impacts associated with flying-fox roosting behaviour.

This round is now closed

Eligible properties and items

Eligible owners and residents will have received a direct invitation to apply. Due to limited funding, the program is currently only available to owners and residents of houses and units within 50m of trees that have been permanently or seasonally occupied by flying-foxes at the Avalon or Balgowlah colonies since 2016.

Eligible items include purchases and services which will assist in mitigating impacts associated with flying-fox roosting behaviour. Further details are available in the Funding Guidelines.
