Council reveals election campaign wishlist


KINGSTON Council has outlined a series of projects they would like to see federal parties commit to in the lead up to the 18 May election.

One of council’s requests is for the development of a sporting facility at “the delta site,” a 34 hectare space in the green wedge on Kingston Road. Council is also asking for investment into the green wedge for a pipeline to pump recycled water for use on gardens, golf courses and parklands.

Council is asking for investment into sports by way of an upgrade to Kingston Heath Reserve, home of the Bentleigh Greens.

Transport investments have also made council’s wishlist, with improved safety at Moorabbin airport and the “creation of a freight rail hub in Dandenong South” to help reduce the number of trucks on roads being advocated for. Transport investment around the “monash jobs hub” has also been asked for.

Increased action on climate change and improved bandwidth speeds close out council’s campaign wishlist.

The mayor Georgina Oxley said “these key regional projects would make a significant difference by investing in vital transport, infrastructure and sporting facilities.”

“In the lead up to 18 May election we’re calling on all parties to commit to supporting these key projects and investing in the local community. We’re keen to work in partnership with the Australian government to deliver high quality services to Kingston and the entire region,” she said.
