Supporting sport and recreation in the valley

Council supports two Sports Committees in the Clarence Valley. The Clarence and Lower Clarence Sports Committee's make recommendations to Council for the annual allocation of funds (currently $35,000 each - applications open in February each year) for worthy sports projects of a capital nature. The Sports Committees also provide a structure for supporting the activities of sport and recreation organisations.
