Mount Waverley Reserve Master Plan Funding

As your voice in the State Government and your Local State Labor Member, I’ve been proud to deliver for local community sport clubs.

Hundreds of local residents and members of the Mount Waverley Blues Football Netball Club and Mount Waverley Cricket Club signed my petition calling on the Victorian Government to commit funding to help deliver the Mount Waverley Reserve master plan.

The Mount Waverley Reserve master plan, funded as part of the 2019 Victorian Budget and since completed by The City of Monash, outlines a plan for future upgrades and improvements of this facility aimed at supporting and increasing sport, recreation and physical activity within our community. This is an opportunity for partnership with all levels of government, local stakeholders and the community to work towards this shared vision, delivering collaboratively for our community.

Earlier this year, I met with the Minister for Community Sport and spoke in Parliament about the benefit these upgrades could bring to our local sporting clubs.

Thanks to your support, we were about to secure a win for the Mount Waverley Reserve. In the 2022/23 State Budget, the Andrews Labor Government committed $2 million towards upgrading the Reserve’s oval and pavilion.

June 2019

In the 2019/20 Victorian Budget, with the support of local sporting clubs, we secured funding for the development of a master plan by Sports and Recreation Victoria. 

Monash City Council drafted the Mount Waverley Reserve Master Plan and opened consultation from August-September 2021.

Late-2021

The development of the Mount Waverley Reserve Master Plan was completed in November 2021.

I joined the Minister for Community Sport, Ros Spence MP, to see Mount Waverley Reserve and discuss the new master plan with David Grossman from the Mount Waverley Cricket Club and Steve Pewtress from the Mount Waverley Blues Football Netball Club.
