Armstrong Creek Fire Station

My question is for the Minister for Emergency Services. Armstrong Creek has been earmarked for substantial growth for more than 10 years. One report claimed that by 2030 Armstrong Creek could be home to up to 60 000 people. 2021 census data shows that there are around 20 000 people living in the growth area […]

Port Campbell mobile tower upgrades

My question is for the Minister for Innovation, Medical Research and the Digital Economy. Port Campbell is a beautiful coastal town in my electorate, but it needs a mobile tower, not just for amenity but for safety. This small town is usually home to 350 people, but in summer it balloons to 5000 people. On […]

Big Housing Build needed for Warrnambool

Coincidentally these letters also coincided with a visit I made to […]

Rupanyup Primary School playground

Seeking funding for The Lookout in Dennington

My adjournment debate is for the Premier, and the action I seek is for the Premier to meet with Western Region Alcohol and Drug Centre and other stakeholders who are seeking funding for the Lookout residential rehabilitation facility in Dennington, near Warrnambool.
