- Hon Bronwyn Pike, Minister for Education
Brimbank City Council is leading a strong advocacy campaign for the State Government to give back the soon to be vacant Sunvale Primary School site in Sunshine for community use, and has urged the community to make its voice heard by supporting the Council’s new petition and postcard campaign.
The site offers an excellent opportunity to be used to meet the needs of the local community.
There is currently a shortage of public open space in the vicinity of the school, and the Brimbank City Council is recommending that the State Government give residents access to a suburban or neighbourhood park that has a playground, seating, possible shelter, paths, lots of good tree planting and a “kick about” space.
The Council began advocating for this in November 2008 and believes that strong, continued advocacy to the State Government is required to ensure that the open space is provided to the Council as a component of any development.
All community members who are interested in building a better Brimbank are urged to support this drive to gain a favourable outcome from the State Government.
Please show your support by signing the Council petition to the State Government (see petition below).
Brimbank City Council has also produced copies of a postage paid postcard that residents can mail to show their support for the Sunvale Primary School site being returned to community use. The postcards are addressed to the Minister for Education, and ask the State Government to help build a better Brimbank by giving back the Sunvale Primary School site for community use.
Residents are invited to pick up copies of the advocacy postcards from Brimbank City Council’s customer service centres, libraries, leisure centres, community centres and neighbourhood houses.
This is a great opportunity for the community to make its voice heard, and to show how important it is for our City that the site be given back for community use.
Help build a better Brimbank by giving back the Sunvale Primary School site for community use.
