NEW PROJECTS DELIVER FOR HURSTBRIDGE COMMUNITY

New meeting places, sporting facilities and a walking trail will enhance Hurstbridge’s much-loved open spaces, made possible by a major investment from the Andrews Labor Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund. Minister for Local Government Shaun Leane today announced $2 million funding for the Graysharps Road Open Space Precinct from latest round of the fund that makes local communities stronger and more connected. The Graysharps Open Space Precinct is central to community life in Hurstbridge – the project will deliver facilities including an amphitheatre, refurbished netball courts, a community bike workshop and an LED-lit trail linking the Diamond Creek Trail with the Ben Frilay Pavilion. The project will be delivered by the Nillumbik Shire Council, which will contribute $925,550. Minister Leane also joined Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green to announce upgrades for the Hurstbridge Community Multi-use Facility – supported by an allocation of $705,000 from the Growing Suburbs Fund. This important local project also received $150,000 from Sport and Recreation Victoria and $849,233 from Nillumbik Shire Council. The facility will be redeveloped into a multipurpose community space through the expansion of social rooms and addition of accessible, female-friendly amenities, encouraging wider participation in sport and community programs. Since 2015, Nillumbik Shire Council has received a total of almost $25.7 million through the Growing Suburbs Fund for 17 community-building projects. The Growing Suburbs Fund is a $325 million, six-year investment supporting critical local infrastructure in Melbourne's diverse and fast-growing outer suburbs.  Since it was established in 2015, it has supported 253 projects, representing a total infrastructure investment of more than $910 million. For more information visit localgovernment.vic.gov.au/grants. Quotes attributable to Minister for Local Government Shaun Leane “Places like Hurstbridge need facilities that bring communities together – and that’s exactly what we are providing.” “The Growing Suburbs Fund provides infrastructure and facilities that encourage people young and old to get out and about and be part of the community.” Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “Hurstbridge is such a great place to live and raise a family and it’s fantastic that these important local projects have got the financial backing to move ahead.” “COVID has meant that our community values its outdoor spaces more than ever. The Graysharps Open Space Precinct will deliver for netballers, walkers, runners, musicians and those who simply love the great outdoors.”

NEW COMMUNITY HUB FOR WALLAN

A brand-new community hub for Wallan is on the way thanks to the Andrews Labor Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund. Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green, representing Minister for Local Government Shaun Leane, today inspected the project works that are already well underway. When complete, the $1.2 million hub will connect families, youth and children with one stop access to vital support services creating a much-needed link between the community and service providers. Featuring flexible meeting spaces, three consulting rooms and a collaborative breakout space, the project will transform an existing council building into an integrated community hub to support community access to services and programs. The hub is within walking distance to Wallan CBD and transport services, behind the Community Bank Adventure Playground, making it very accessible to the community. The project received $850,000 from the 2020-21 round of the Growing Suburbs Fund which supports the creation of community connections, enhanced services, and provides greater opportunities for the local community. The project will be delivered by the Mitchell Shire Council, which has contributed $354,000 towards the project. Since 2015, the Growing Suburbs Fund has invested more than $21.1 million into Mitchell Shire Council for 22 projects including the now much loved Adventure Playground in Wallan. More information on the Growing Suburbs Fund is available at: https://www.localgovernment.vic.gov.au/grants/growing-suburbs-fund Quotes attributable to Minister for Local Government Shaun Leane “The Growing Suburbs Fund provides crucial community infrastructure and is delivering results for local communities.” “The Growing Suburbs Fund is helping fast growing communities like Wallan get the vital community facilities they need so they can continue to thrive as the population increases.” Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “It’s great to see the Growing Suburbs Fund delivering projects like the Wallan Community Hub, providing vital services to growing communities.”  “I’m excited that the community of Wallan have been able to benefit from the Growing Suburbs Fund. I look forward to seeing the community hub complete.”

Nillumbik Council: Fund netball facilities in Hurstbridge!

Nillumbik Shire Council has failed sporting women and girls of Hurstbridge and district. Council has known for years that it’s simply not good enough, for the only first division football and netball club in Nillumbik, to have the worst rooms in the Shire. No dedicated female friendly change rooms for football, cricket or netballers, and not even an accessible bathroom for patrons. And for years, netballers have lobbied council to fix inadequate, non-compliant and unsafe netball courts. I’ve done all I can to support them, but Council keeps dropping the ball. Timeline: October 2018 - the Andrews Labor Government allocates $150,000 towards a modest upgrade to female friendly facilities at the Hurstbridge clubrooms. Two years on, the money remains unspent. February 2020 – Nillumbik Council applies to Sport & Recreation Victoria for $375,000 to upgrade courts and lighting. I strongly backed the application along with Netball Victoria. Nillumbik failed to lodge all required documentation, so the application scored 0% in a competitive funding round. September 2020 – Nillumbik Council receives $705,000 from the State Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund for a $1.7 million project to upgrade sporting facilities in Graysharps Road, Hurstbridge. This $1.7 million project doesn’t include netball courts and lighting. Let’s tell Council that women and girls have waited long enough for female friendly change rooms, and long enough for courts and lighting. It’s time that Council gives Hurstbridge its fair share. It’s time that Council gives sporting women and girls their fair share. Therefore, this petition urges Council to expand the Graysharps Road Project to include the netball courts and lighting. *Photo taken before COVID-19
