Work is underway on a much needed family and community centre in Clyde North that will provide a new central hub to deliver key services to local residents.

Minister for Suburban Development Lily D’Ambrosio today visited the site of the Selandra Integrated Community Centre to see firsthand the start of construction and talk to locals about the benefits of the project.

Included in the Community Centre:

  • Range of multi-use activity programs,
  • Events and meeting spaces,
  • Cater for Council services, community groups and small businesses.

The Andrews Government provided $2.5 Million for the project from the Growing Suburbs Fund in 2015-16 as part of our work to deliver the services and infrastructure communities need in some of the city’s fastest growing outer suburbs.

“Facilities like this one make such a great contribution to the community and help to cater for demand as these areas grow at a rapid rate.” Minister for Suburban Development Lily D’Ambrosio said.

Fund targets high priority projects that improve the amenity, liveability and resilience of communities in Victoria’s 10 interfaces councils.

Last year’s Growing Suburbs Fund also helped Hume City Council begin construction on a warm water pool in Sunbury, provided $2.6 Million to Whittlesea City Council for a refurbished community centre and helped Melton City Council revitalise their town centre.

“We’re helping councils provide the community infrastructure growing communities need.” Acting Minister for Local Government Richard Wynne said.

“This means more play spaces, more community centres, more sporting facilities and more parks and gardens.”

Councils eligible to apply for funding are some of the most rapidly growing in Melbourne and include

  • Cardinia,
  • Casey,
  • Hume,
  • Melton,
  • Mitchell,
  • Mornington Peninsula,
  • Nillumbik,
  • Whittlesea,
  • Wyndham,
  • Yarra Ranges.

Through the Fund, the State Government is helping outer-suburban communities build local infrastructure such as family and community centres, town centres, parks and reserves and playgrounds.
