Yesterday the Ombudsman tabled a report in Parliament — Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The report makes three recommendations for reform to the State Government and two recommendations for the three councils subject to the review — including Glen Eira City Council.
The State Government will provide funding for two projects to enhance active recreation within the City of Glen Eira.
Announced today by Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos, $250,000 has been provided for an upgrade to the senior play space at Hodgson Reserve.
The funding will contribute to the redevelopment of the underutilised play space into a high-functioning, multipurpose play space, including: a hit-up wall; multipurpose ball court; bouldering wall; climbing net; table tennis table; and social activity space.
McKinnon Reserve also received $233,000 in funding for the development of a new active play space. The funding will contribute to the installation of a new multipurpose sports court; custom designed bouldering wall; and social play elements — an extension to the play space that will soon be redeveloped.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Tony Athanasopoulos thanked the State Government for the generous contributions.
“This is a great result for the Glen Eira community, especially children and older youth,” he said.
