30 April 2019
My adjournment matter is for the Treasurer, and the action I seek is an urgent response to a letter I sent dated 11 April 2019.
On that day, I wrote to the Treasurer outlining the 2019 Sandringham district Victorian budget submission.
In this submission, I highlight local projects for funding consideration in the 2019–20 Victorian state budget.
- $50 000 for the Cheltenham Football Netball Club for an electronic scoreboard at the Jack Barker Oval
- $10 million towards the staged development of a multi-hectare regional sporting precinct within the Kingston green wedge
- $7.5 million for the development and implementation of stage 1 of a master plan for the rebuild of Mentone Girls Secondary College
- $3 million for a new netball facility in Bayside
- $2.5 million for the redevelopment of the Sandringham Hospital outpatient clinic
- $9 million for the redevelopment and implementation of stage 1 of a master plan for the rebuild of Sandringham College
- $1.5 million for the installation of new traffic lights and a pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Bluff Road and Tulip Street in Sandringham
- the establishment of a Victoria Police shopfront at Southland shopping centre
- a protective services officer presence at Mentone railway station from 10.00 a.m. until last train 365 days a year
- the preservation of the vast majority of former Gas and Fuel Corporation land on Nepean Highway, Highett, for community use as sporting ovals, more open space and more train station car parks
Additionally I seek consideration for critical infrastructure projects within my community, including:
- $50 000 in funding for the Marine Education Science and Community Centre so that this organisation can commence the planning of a marine centre purposed with preserving, understanding and building awareness about the district’s unique and diverse marine biology
- $1 million for the redevelopment of Black Rock Primary School’s presently dilapidated sports oval
- $3 million for the expansion of the Southern Basketball Association’s stadium precinct.
In the spirit of governing for all Victorians and in anticipation of the Treasurer’s positive response, I welcome the opportunity to work constructively with the government to ensure that our communities are adequately supported in their work by the Victorian state government.
I am determined to deliver the infrastructure and investment that will provide for future generations in my community, and I look forward to the Treasurer’s response to my letter.
