FIX LABOR'S POOLS FUNDING SHORTFALL
The Morrison Liberal Government is delivering $30 million to fund two aquatic facilities in the Surf Coast and on the Bellarine.
These facilities are not only vital for swimming safety and community health and well-being; their construction will also support many local jobs which are very much needed for our local economy as we navigate the economic challenges of COVID-19.
But I need your help.
Surf Coast Aquatic Centre
While the Morrison Government is contributing $20 million to the proposed $38.5 million Surf Coast Aquatic Centre, the state Labor Government has only committed $10 million.
In order for Surf Coast Shire to build this facility in Torquay, Labor needs to fix this $9 million funding shortfall.
North Bellarine Pool
While the Morrison Government is delivering $10 million to fully fund a 50 metre outdoor pool and change rooms (Stage 1) in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong, we need state government funding for a proposed indoor pool and ancillary facilities to be built adjacent to the outdoor pool (Stage 2).
Council is considering two possible locations in Drysdale, with a decision due in August 2020 and design and planning work to commence soon afterwards. It is therefore critical that the state government steps up and commits to funding an indoor pool and other Stage 2 works.
