The NSW Government, led by Miranda local member Eleni Petinos have granted the Sutherland Shire Council 4.75 million dollars for the Seymour Shaw Park development plan, in an amazing show of generosity and commitment to the local families and sporting organisations in Miranda.
The grant, which is dependent on Sutherland Shire Council signing off on the development application by June 30th 2021, is aimed to speed up the development process, unclog the planning system and delivering better results for local members faster.

Miranda Magpies Sponsorship Manager Michael P.J. Whawell, said it was a remarkable day for the project that has been "discussed for 11 years".
"It's an amazing moment not only for Miranda Magpies Football, Cricket and Netball, but for other community stakeholders that want to see better facilities at the park. This area is a critical piece of open space that needs to be shared by all. The funding is vital to deliver a precinct that everyone can equally enjoy".
Watch this space for Council progress and details of the final plans. It's exciting times at the Miranda Magpies Football Club with both our development applications approved and now the funding to enhance the park.
