Investing in new sports facilities at Pembroke Park
 

Sorell is one of the fast growing regions in Tasmania, however, local sports and recreational facilities are not keeping pace with demand.

The Hodgman Liberal Government understands Sorell residents deserve sports and recreation facilities that not only support but encourage activity.

That’s why the Government will commit $2.5 million towards the Pembroke Park redevelopment plan, subject to a funding partnership being agreed between Sorell Council and the Federal Government, to make it a reality.

Liberal candidate for Prosser Jane Howlett has listened to the local community and worked hard to secure this funding.

Jane knows that getting more local families involved in their sporting clubs is so important – it’s great for the community and it’s great for kids’ health.

Today’s announcement is yet another step towards the Government achieving its target of having the healthiest population in the nation and reducing obesity to below the national average by 2025.

The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to investing in our local communities to ensure they have the sports facilities they need.
