Tarneit will benefit from a range of new projects designed to improve public spaces in the rapidly growing area in Melbourne’s western suburbs.
Member for Tarneit, Sarah Connolly today announced investment of $485,000 into Tarneit through the Suburban Revitalisation program. This will deliver outdoor music and movie sessions and a 6-month trial of a Makers and Growers market that will help connect people and support local businesses.
Supported by Tarneit’s Suburban Revitalisation Board, the first events will be kicking off in December 2021 and January 2022.
This project follows a $2.2 million investment in Tarneit from the Andrew Labor Government, which included $465,000 to upgrade the network of parks in Tarneit, providing high-quality recreation opportunities for the community and $330,000 for enhancements to Sunset Views Boulevard.
The Suburban Revitalisation Program works with regional and local communities to plan and deliver infrastructure, community development and engagement initiatives.
These projects focus on boosting social and economic outcomes locally, as businesses and communities recover from the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).
