Adjournment-Mount Waverley Reserve Master Plan

MR FREGON (Mount Waverley) (19:02): (5922) My adjournment item this evening is for the Minister for Community Sport, and I ask the minister to update the house on the progress of the Mount Waverley Reserve master plan project. In the lead-up to the 2018 election I was delighted to give an undertaking to the sports clubs who use this important reserve in Mount Waverley that the Andrews Labor government would provide funds to allow Monash council to develop a master plan that would show the council’s vision and objectives for the sport and recreation facilities and infrastructure at the Mount Waverley Reserve. There are three clubs who use this reserve, and not only those but the community—the Waverley Blues Football Netball Club, the Mount Waverley Cricket Club and the Mount Waverley Tennis Club—and they were very excited with not only the promise but also the delivery of the funds for the council for the master plan development. Sport is such an important part of the fabric of our community, as we know, and I am told by the clubs that they and their members submitted a lot of feedback when submissions were requested. With a clear vision of potential future works for this reserve, we will be able to see the Monash council’s vision for the future. I know the community shares my interest in seeing the final conceptual plan, and I look forward to the minister’s response.
