Member for Miranda Eleni Petinos announced on February 9th, that $2.99 million dollars has been allocated to Sutherland Shire Council to fund Stage 2 of the Seymour Shaw Park Masterplan, as part of more than $250 million NSW Government Accelerated Infrastructure Fund to deliver thousands of new homes across New South Wales.
Premier Dominic Perrottet explained "We are fast tracking the delivery of essential infrastructure required to speed up the construction of thousands of new homes right across the state".
"This funding will see the delivery of a modern sport and recreational facility which includes new sports fields, sports clubhouse and amenities building, off-street car parking and landscaping" Ms Petinos said.
Eleni celebrated the news with the Committee and junior Miranda Magpies players, explaining how important this project is and even having a kick herself. We've got a spot for you at the Magpies Ms Petinos, just let us know if you'd prefer striker or winger!
Miranda Magpies Club President Gary O'Riordan said "We are delighted that the State Government are investing in this critical infrastructure that is desperately needed for a growing club like Miranda Magpies, in the heart of the Sutherland Shire. We are looking foward to having input with Sutherland Shire Council into the final design for the sports fields in the coming months.
Gary continued "And we're greatly appreciative of our local member Eleni Petinos, for her continued, long term support not only of Miranda Magpies FC, but junior sports and promoting healthy living.
Stage 1 works are scheduled to commence in late 2023.
