Advocacy for Flemington HubWednesday, 26 June In
Moonee Valley City Council will continue to advocate for external funding to help build the new Flemington Community Hub.
It follows a Budget decision to adjust funding for the project in Council’s Strategic Resource Plan 2020-23 and Long-Term Capital Works Plan to 2044-45.
Council has budgeted $20 million to construct the Hub and associated infrastructure in 2021 – 2023 and over $20 million for the Debneys Park precinct in the longer-term, post-2029/30.
The Flemington Community Hub is one of Council’s top-tier advocacy priorities, and features in Council’s long-term strategic plan, MV2040.
Council remains strongly committed to delivering a vibrant new community hub for Flemington, which will service the area’s rapidly growing and diverse population.
The impact of external factors such as the introduction of rate-capping by the Victorian State Government in 2016, means that we are required to seek the support of external partners in order to deliver all of the projects that we aspire for on behalf of the Moonee Valley community.
Council has resolved to write again to local State and Federal parliamentarians, renewing our invitation for them to partner with us in delivering the Flemington Community Hub project.
