The Canberra Liberals welcome the GWS proposal for significant and creative investment in the Manuka Oval precinct, Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Hanson said today.

“We look forward to the community discussion surrounding this proposal and welcome the consideration of Manuka Oval for significant private sector investment,” Mr Hanson said.

“The private sector is often best placed for this sort of development with the government taking an oversight and supporting role.

“This sort of proposal has the potential to create many jobs during construction and I look forward to further discussions with the community and proponents,” Mr Hanson concluded.
