Disaster Recovery Assistance & Opportunities

North Coast & Tablelands Recovery - Business, Industry & Tourism Sub-committee

Glen Innes Severn Council are represented by Manager Economic Devepment, Margot Davis on the above sub-committee. 

A Recovery Action Plan (RAP) is in development for the short-term and also looks at longer term initiatives to prepare for any future disaster events for the above regional sub-committee. 

Glen Innes Severn Council will also form a local disaster sub-committee to devise a local RAP.  Expressions of interest to join this sub-committee can be sent to Margot Davis directly - mdavis@gisc.nsw.gov.au

The top three (3) recovery initiatives we have been advocating for in this forum are:

1. Broardening of eligibility for indirectly affected businesses of bushfire affected areas

2. Promotion of the regions to encourage tourists to return by Destination NSW

3. Ensuring that local businesses can quote for disaster recovery works

 

Access to Bushfire Customer Care Services

Service NSW is the place to go for support including the Disaster Assistance Finder.
