As the Barr Labor government spends hundreds of millions of dollars on light rail for the north, Member for Murrumbidgee Jeremy Hanson is calling for a better deal for Waramanga with funding for long-called for playground facilities which have been ignored for years.
“The playgrounds in Waramanga really aren’t servicing the community. They are old and a long way from the shops where people congregate,” Mr Hanson said.
“The Waramanga community has come forward with a proposal for a new playground at the shops, which is the right location that will actually create social cohesiveness.
“The locals have come up with a very good proposal, with full architectural plans and local community support. It is now up to the government to back the community.
“That’s why I am officially calling on the Labor-Greens government to back the community and fund this local park in the next budget,” Mr Hanson concluded.
Mr Hanson will table a motion to support the Waramanga playground in the ACT Legislative Assembly on Wednesday 21 March 2018.
