Adjournment: Sporting Reserves

Ros SPENCE (Yuroke) (19:09:14) — (14 570) My adjournment matter is to the Minister for Local Government, and the action I seek is for the minister to provide me with an update as to what opportunities may exist to help provide facilities for newly developed communities in the Yuroke electorate. The Yuroke electorate includes a number of new housing estates and covers one of the fastest growing areas in our state. Master plans for many local developments include future plans for facilities such as sporting reserves, and I know that many local communities are keen to see these new facilities take shape. These are facilities such as the new AFL and tennis facilities and pavilion at the Merrifield West recreation reserve development and the development of the Mount Aitken district recreation reserve, including softball fields and pavilion. This government has a fantastic record of working with the Hume City Council to deliver improved infrastructure in my community, and I look forward to hearing from the minister about opportunities to continue this work into the future.
