Construction of the highly anticipated Sunvale Community Park is now underway – after Brimbank Mayor Cr John Hedditch ceremonially turned the first sod last week.
This fantastic park development will create an important and highly valued community asset for the people of Sunshine.
Sunvale Community Park will fill a long term gap in community access to open space – by creating a high quality park with wonderful green space and recreation facilities.
The wider Sunshine community, and in particular the members of Friends of Sunvale Community Park, has played a key role in this project – from ensuring this land remained in public hands to providing important input to help inform the development of a Masterplan for the site.
Commencement of works at Sunvale is the latest development under Council’s Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan.
The investment by Council and the State Government in the development of Sunvale Community Park continues the positive impact that Creating Better Parks is having on the Brimbank community.
Construction, in line with the Sunvale Community Park Master Plan adopted in June 2016, will include:
Our Hard Waste collection started Monday 3 July and finishes on Friday 11 August. Get rid of your unwanted hard waste without going to the tip or hiring a skip bin.
Hard waste will be collected from different residential areas of Brimbank on different weeks throughout the collection period.
You'll get a brochure in your letterbox about two weeks before the collection in your area, telling you the specific collection week and details about the service.
The material for collection must be on the nature strip by 6am on the Monday of the collection week. Don't be put anything out any earlier than the weekend before your scheduled collection.
A copy of the brochure and details of collection weeks are available on our Hard Rubbish page. If you're worried you haven't got the information brochure, contact Brimbank Customer Service on 9249 4000.
