The Andews Labor Government is protecting Victoria’s most important cultural landmarks and buildings with a record $3 million in grants from the Living Heritage Program.
Member for Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines MP announced an $80,000 grant from this year’s program to the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) for works for Napier Waller House in Ivanhoe.
The funding will enable urgent conservation works to the laundry, including structural stabilisation and drainage works, and service upgrades.

New road safety cameras have been switched on in Rosanna to slow motorists down and keep children, parents and other pedestrians safe.
Member for Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines announced today that the new cameras on Rosanna Road at the Banyule Road intersection had started enforcing this morning.
Variable message signs will remain in place for two weeks to advise drivers that the cameras are now enforcing.
The Andrews Labor Government provided $900,000 for four new cameras along Rosanna Road, with the remaining two cameras at the intersection of Darebin Street to be activated by the end of the year.


R U OK Day

September 12, 2019

I attended the Victorian Parliament’s men’s health breakfast this morning with 25 other blokes, and we were privileged and uplifted by AFL legend and educator of and advocate for men’s health David Parkin, OAM. We reflected not just on footy and our own health but on those we have lost through mental and physical health hardships and how to live a balanced life. Again this year in my community we have lost good people, men, by their own hand. On R U OK? Day we ask and challenge ourselves to understand others. I am drawn to the strength of Hugh Mackay and his book The Good Life, where he talks about a good life being one 'devoted to the common good’ and its value to and impact on others.

Olympic Village Primary School

August 28, 2019

I would like to acknowledge and thank Olympic Village Primary School and in particular principal Cresten Pearce and school council president Margaret Phillips for hosting both the Premier and me on Wednesday in touring the $6 million redevelopment of Olympic Village Primary School. It is quite apt as we head to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games next year that at the place in West Heidelberg, Olympic Village, where we hosted athletes back in 1956, we are building a brand-new primary school which will open in September next month. This is really important. It will cater for up to 175 students. We have got the funds there to also do the landscaping and knock down the old buildings. It is going to be a fantastic space for the West Heidelberg community, particularly Olympic Village, and I am very pleased with the leadership of both Margaret Phillips and Cresten Pearce and the parents community there.
