Local News for Monday the 6th of December.

There were two new cases of COVID-19 reported in the Mid North Coast Local Health District to 8pm on Saturday.

Both cases are from the Kempsey Local Government Area.

One is a household contact of a confirmed case and the other is linked to a known case or cluster.

There have been 532 cases reported in the District since the beginning of the current NSW outbreak.

Funding of $2.32 million awarded under the NSW Government’s Regional Growth Fund has enabled Kempsey Shire Council to construct a modern, centralised sewerage system

in the South Kempsey Employment Lands Hub.

The design for the project consists of an industry best practice reticulated sewerage system with a network of pressure pipes and pumps

that will connect this largely industrial area to the local sewer network.

Council’s Manager Water and Sewer, Wes Trotter, noted that the new system will remove the limitations that the current septic systems impose on land owners.

The new system will be able to cater for additional demand and therefore has the potential to boost local industry, housing and tourism.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2021 and is due for completion in 2022.

Landholders in the North Coast region who were impacted by the black summer bushfires have received on farm support through the Stock Water Recovery program funded

by the NSW government.

North Coast Local Land Services delivered the program which directly supported the recovery and resilience of fire-affected properties, including activities

that led to drought-proofing of farms.

Senior Land Services Officer, Craig Hart, said the program supported piping and fencing infrastructure and allowed properties to reclaim and introduce

water supplies for stock on farms, with the purchase of over 308 troughs, 84 tanks and 32 pumps across 87 properties.

The North Coast Local Land Services region extends from Tweed Shire Council in the north to Port Macquarie-Hastings Council in the south.
