Kim O’KEEFFE (Shepparton) (17:13): (273) My adjournment is to the Minister for Community Sport, and the action I seek is that the minister provide funding for the redevelopment of the Shepparton sports and events centre. This is a priority project and was an original project request at the beginning of the regional Commonwealth Games model. This is a priority project for the Victorian basketball association, with the opportunity to attract both state and national basketball tournaments to Shepparton, which are now being lost due to the facility not being up to standard. It is also a priority project for the Greater Shepparton City Council, who have invested in the design to have the project shovel ready. The building, which is built in 1972, needs immediate attention, with the facility deteriorating at a fast rate. During the floods the stadium was marked as an emergency evacuation centre but could not be used due to the facility leaking and not been compliant. The new facility would become a sporting and events centre, with a 3000-seat show court which would be used for bigger and broader attractions. The $2 billion regional package announced following the cancellation of the Commonwealth Games must be fairly distributed, and I call for the minister to invest in this much-needed community facility.
