Recreation Centre Redevelopment Launched
Member for Lalor Joanne Ryan has today welcomed the launch of the Werribee Recreation Centre redevelopment.
“Local residents will be delighted to see progress being made on such an important community space,” Ms Ryan said.
“The need for the project was recognised with $9 million in funding from the Gillard Government’s Regional Development Australia Fund (RDAF) Round Four.”
Ms Ryan said the redeveloped site would deliver a 12 court indoor sports centre, a gymnasium, four all-weather outdoor courts, as well as a café, crèche and meeting rooms.
“The Hub is in a great location, between Melbourne and regional Victoria, and has the potential to bring visitors and investment to our region.”
“The project will promote local sports participation, enhance social inclusion and improve the health and wellbeing of our community.”
Ms Ryan said that while she was pleased to see the next stage of the redevelopment take place, the Abbott Government had abandoned future funding for similar projects.
“Under the Abbott Government’s proposed ‘National Stronger Regions’ Fund – which doesn’t even begin until 2015 - there is no specific commitment to funding regional infrastructure and I am concerned that growing communities like Wyndham will be left behind.”
“The Abbott Government is leaving communities across the country with no funding and lots of uncertainty.”
