St Albans Electorate | Constituency Questions

Ms SULEYMAN (St Albans) (11:51:43): (971) My question is to the Minister for Water. I note there has been community interest in the future of the project to improve a key section of Stony Creek, which runs through my electorate of St Albans. I would like to thank the funding partners in this project for their support so far, with Development Victoria; the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning; Melbourne Water and City West Water contributing the lion’s share of this project—so far almost $8 million. I would also like to put on record Brimbank City Council’s support of $100 000. As we know, the Labor government is investing significantly in our rivers and creeks that run through the west, and developing with the community a Waterways of the West action plan to protect and enhance the important natural assets that we have. I ask the minister: what steps is the government taking to address recent issues around the site rehabilitation and the project for Stony Creek?
