Bart Mellish, the local member for Aspley outlined that the online surveys and information sessions feedback helped to determine the right mix of community infrastructure. “I’m looking forward to these great new facilities getting up and running which the local community can freely use. They will be a great improvement over what’s currently there,” he said.
“Sporting and community groups will be able to start using the new facilities before the old facilities are redeveloped, providing undisrupted access to open space. “The precinct will accommodate a variety of recreational uses and will promote an active lifestyle in the community”. “As part of the upgrade we have also gone out to local sporting groups to discuss association model options for managing the new facilities,” he said.
