M s Ke ay asked the Minister for the Environment and Energy, in writing, on 7 November 2016 (Transferred from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development on 5 December 2016):

In respect of the Australian Government's election commitment to provide $250,000 to construct an Eastern Foreshore Rockwall in Smithton, Tasmania, to help develop the area as a community recreation spot, will this be honoured; if not, why not; if so, (a) what will be the process for either the Circular Head Council or Tasmanian Government to receive this funding, and (b) when will the funding be delivered.

Mr Frydenberg : The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

During the 2016 election, the Government made a series of election commitments as part of the Improving Your Local Parks and Environment program. Under this program, Circular Head Council has been invited to apply for $250,000 to construct the Eastern Foreshore Rockwall. Applications close on 14 March 2017. Funding agreements for all grants are expected be finalised and the first round of payments made by mid-June 2017.
