The final report will be completed by the end of August and will include proposed concept designs and costings. No funding has been sought for the delivery of this project at this stage.

The feasibility study (which includes the Westerfolds Paddle Sports Plan) is being funded through a Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant from the Victorian Government through Sport and Recreation Victoria, in partnership with Manningham, Banyule and Nillumbik councils, Canoeing Victoria and Melbourne Canoe Club.

As land managers of parts of the site, Parks Victoria and Melbourne Water are key stakeholders in the project.
