Residents of the northern suburbs will be one step closer to getting a public swimming pool thanks to a $5 million commitment from the Morrison Government.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, has today announced that a re-elected Morrison Government will invest $5 million to get the North Coast Pool underway – a project which he says the community has been calling out for.
“As a dad, I know how hard it is to get our kids into swimming lessons in our northern suburbs,” Mr Porter said.
“Our community has been crying out for this pool, and today I am incredibly proud to be able to announce this critical funding.
“$5 million is what the City of Wanneroo needs to plan the pool and get this important project underway.”
Mr Porter said that the North Coast Pool was an important piece of infrastructure for the rapidly growing northern suburbs.
“Our northern coastline is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Each year we welcome thousands of new people into our community – and this number continues to grow,” Mr Porter said.
“This investment means the people living in the suburbs of Butler, Clarkson, Quinns Rocks, Merriwa, Alkimos and surrounding suburbs will be one step closer to having a state of the art public swimming pool.”
This latest announcement builds on the record investment the Morrison Government has been able to deliver for our northern suburbs.
“We’ve achieved a lot for our community including extending the Mitchell Freeway to Hester Avenue, providing an additional $108 million to further extend it to Alkimos, investing $350 to build Yanchep Rail and funding the Butler Sporting Complex,” Mr Porter said.
“Our strong economic management means that we’re able to fund these important community projects which actually change people’s lives.”
