The Victorian Government has approved plans to redevelop Mornington’s Alexandra Park Pavilion, clearing the way for the creation of a new co-located medical and sporting facility.
Approval of Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme Amendment C263morn means we can now get on with delivering this much-anticipated community asset, in partnership with the Alexandra Park Project Group and The Bays Hospital.
The project will see two old, outdated sports pavilions replaced with one double-storey building covering a similar footprint. When complete, it will provide the four sporting clubs that call Alexandra Park home with modern clubrooms and facilities suited to the needs of all players, officials and spectators.
The new building will also give our community access to medical specialist consulting services, as well as community-focussed health and wellbeing programs.
The Alexandra Park Project Group has committed significant time, energy and resources to getting this project off the ground, including raising $400,000 in community funding.
In 2019, Flinders Federal MP Greg Hunt secured $2.6 million in Federal funding and AFL Victoria has provided a further $100,000. Council has committed to providing the remaining funding to ensure this project goes ahead.
