Lotteries Grant Funding Request Rejected

17-Mar-2009

RTRA has been advocating that the Lotteries West Trails Grants, which currently preclude any form of motorised activity, be broadened to allow applications for trail bike trails.

We were hopeful of getting a hearing for a project to develop a trails network for juniors within the Kwinana Off Road Vehicle Area but we didn't get to first base, effectively being told not to waste our time on preparing a submission.

This is a key issue for RTRA as much of the trails 'master planning' being undertaken by local Shires is done with funding from the Lotteries Commission grants. No wonder not one of these 'master' plans makes any provision for trail bikes!

We have written to the Department of Sport and Recreation, seeking clarification and their support in having this policy amended. Stay tuned for developments.
