Council’s CEO Rebecca McKenzie and I recently met with local Labor, Liberal and Greens candidates from the Divisions of Higgins, Hotham, Goldstein and Macnamara to discuss Glen Eira’s future priorities in the lead up to the Federal Election on Saturday 18 May.
Council has been successful in securing funding thorough Sport and Recreation Victoria’s 2017–18 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund for the following three projects:
- $100,000 for the Moorleigh Village cricket nets/multi-purpose facility — this project will see a conversion of the cricket nets at Moorleigh Community Village Reserve into a multi-purpose sporting facility providing cricket nets and other uses.
- $49,500 for the cricket net upgrade facility extensions — this project is to upgrade existing cricket training facilities at Victory Park, Centenary Park and East Caulfield Reserve. Each location will have an extra training bay constructed.
- $100,000 for the McKinnon Reserve Pavilion female friendly facilities upgrade — this project seeks to redevelop the existing change and bathroom facilities at McKinnon Reserve Pavilion to provide modern female accessible change areas and bathrooms. This project will focus on the remaining amenities attached to the existing change rooms.
Council thanks the State Government for the contribution to these projects. Works are expected to begin towards the end of the 2017–18 financial year.
