Building communities in our local area

The Andrews Labor Government is helping build the infrastructure that the local area needs as part of the 2018/19 Growing Suburbs Fund.

Jude Perera MP, state member for Cranbourne District announced $2,533 000 for a Cranbourne West Community Hub.

The local project is part of a $50 million investment in grants that will go towards 45 new projects in Melbourne’s growing suburbs.

The Labor Government’s investment brings the total project cost to $112 million and is improving critical local infrastructure like family and community centres, town centre and civic revitalisation projects and open space improvements.

Since 2015/2016, the fund has supported Melbourne’s 10 interface municipalities of Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Mornington Peninsula, Nillumbik, Whittlesea, Wyndham, and Yarra Ranges.

Together, these council areas will accommodate 46 per cent of the state’s population growth until 2031.

“This local project will make a real difference because it goes to the heart of building what families need in our community,” Ms Perera said.

“We’re investing because our community is growing and local projects like this will benefit families for years to come.”
