Sport and recreation at Errington - Join the Community Reference Group

Summary

We're looking for people who want to join a community reference group focused on sport and recreation projects at the Errington Precinct.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Margaret Giudice said the group will provide a direct communication channel between the community and Council during the implementation of sport and recreation projects as part of the Errington Precinct Master Plan.

“The transformation of Errington in St Albans is well underway.

“Since the master plan’s adoption in 2012 we’ve seen a number of transformative changes take place including the inclusive playground, Alice’s Playspace, and redevelopment of the Errington Community Centre into the St Albans Community Centre, including Bowery Theatre.

“It’s now time to turn our attention to the various sport and recreation projects planned for the precinct, including plans for an integrated sports pavilion, new tennis courts, and reconstruction of the sports oval.

“It’s important that as this transformation continues, so too does the input of the community.
