A $5.7 million fire station for Clyde North has been promised if the Liberal Nationals Coalition wins government next year.
The new fire station will be integrated with the recently announced election commitment of a new $15 million police station in Clyde North.
Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, Brad Battin said Clyde North was one of the fastest growing suburbs in Victoria, with six families moving into the area each day.
He said between 2014 and 2016 the City of Casey grew by 25,000, a growth rate of 8.65 per cent and it is anticipated that the population will reach 515,000 by 2041.
“Matthew Guy and the Liberal Nationals are committed to keeping Victorians and their homes safe,” said Mr Battin.
“Only the Liberal Nationals will commit to funding vital community safety projects like a fire station in Clyde North.”
“Daniel Andrews has been so busy fighting a war with CFA volunteers that communities like Clyde North have suffered.”
The new station will begin as a volunteer station, providing an opportunity for the community to become involved in volunteering.
There are currently no fire stations in the suburb of Clyde North, with Clyde and Cranbourne stations struggling to accommodate the growing neighbouring suburb.
Member for Bass, Brian Paynter said the Clyde North had seen a massive population growth and needed its own protection against crime and fire.
“People deserve to know their families and homes will be kept safe in the event of a fire – the Liberal Nationals will ensure that happens.”
