MORE FUN FOR FAMILIES AS VILLAGE GREEN PLAYSPACE OPENS
Families in Sunbury will be able to enjoy a newly upgraded playspace from today thanks to support from the Andrews Labor Government.
Situated in Rolling Meadows Village Green’s beautiful surroundings, the playspace allows residents and visitors to enjoy new nature trails, pathways, landscaping and park seating.
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today officially opened the new space just in time for the arrival of warmer weather with summer fast approaching.
The Labor Government provided $256,000 for the upgrade through the Growing Suburbs Fund, while $109,000 was provided by Hume City Council to complete the project.
The Growing Suburbs Fund is a $425 million investment over eight years in critical local infrastructure in Melbourne’s diverse and fast-growing outer suburbs.
Through the Fund the Labor Government has supported almost 350 projects across Melbourne, representing a total infrastructure investment of $1.2 billion and creating more than 11,340 jobs.
According to census data, the number of families living Sunbury has almost doubled in the last five years, underlining the importance of local infrastructure keeping up with population growth.
Since 2015, the Labor Government has invested $36.7 million towards 37 projects in Hume City Council from the Growing Suburbs Fund.
