Daylesford Community Facility

Mr HOWARD —             Having worked with many residents  of  the  Daylesford area, most notably  Allan  and  Faye  McLeod,  to  advance plans for an exciting,  new  and much-needed community facility at  Victoria  Park, Daylesford, I am disappointed to note  that  Hepburn Shire  Council’s  application for $2.5  million  from the federal government’s Regional  Development  Australia  round  5  grants has been cancelled by  the Abbott government.  This  very worthy project  is deserving of support,  and  I  will  continue  to  work  with  Hepburn Shire Council and  the Daylesford community to see this project come to fruition.
