Funding boost promise for the Tamar

Tamar River

The Liberals are promising to inject $4 million into the Tamar River, if re-elected.

Over the next two years, the Liberals are committing to establish a dredging program aimed at fixing the Tamar Estuary.

Premier Peter Gutwein says during the first 100 days of government, the party will consult with all members of the Tamar Estuary Management Taskforce to determine the most appropriate governance model.

If required, he says legislation will be introduced to establish the best way to manage the catchment and tributaries.

The Liberals are also promising up to $1 million annually to support the establishment and ongoing operations of the taskforce.

Errol Stewart from the Tamar Action Group supports the announcement, saying it's a good start to fix the river.
