Ivanhoe will get a new pocket park as part of the Victorian Government’s $154 million investment in greening our growing suburbs.

Member for Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines said the Waterdale Road Pocket Park would be established by mid 2022 with $1.3 million funding under the Suburban Parks Program.

Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio today announced the pocket park as one of the successful first-round projects that will give families much needed green space for recreation, relaxation and spending time with their pets.

Member for Ivanhoe Anthony Carbines today announced Macleod College will share in $388.8 million for 57 upgrade and modernisation projects at schools across Victoria. This includes all school upgrades the Labor Government committed to at the 2018 election.
In addition to the $492,900 received in the 2019-20 State Budget, the Government is providing $4.44 million to construct a new science building, primary school play areas and entry landscaping. The funding will also contribute to the demolition of Block A and part of Block B. This project is part of the Victorian Government's Building Works package, which will deliver $2.7 billion in shovel-ready projects – big and small – to get thousands of people back to work across our state.

Can I say to the thousands of staff at Austin Health; to Austin Wills, the CEO at Warringal Private Hospital; and to the team of course at Mercy Health, a huge health precinct in my electorate; and to the many thousands of workers doing a fantastic job over so many months in relation to COVID-19: the teamwork and the leadership has been excellent.

I know that today of course we are also working through Macleod Preschool and a COVID case there, and I want to thank the education department and the Deputy Premier for their work and that of the team there, and I wish well that community as we continue to work our way through supporting each other in these challenging times.

I rise to acknowledge the service of Dr Max Alexander, and to quote his own letter:

"It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to be the interim CEO at Austin Health over this short time and to work with such a committed and passionate team who make a significant contribution to patient care."

I do want to thank Dr Alexander for the confidence and the leadership he has shown over several months at Austin Health as interim CEO and also take the opportunity for us to welcome Adam Horsburgh as CEO on 15 June. Mr Horsburgh has extensive health sector management experience in Victoria as well as in the UK’s National Health Service. He is currently the deputy CEO and chief operating officer at Melbourne Health, and he has also had senior policy and adviser experience with the Victorian government, including at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Premier and Cabinet. We are very much looking forward to him joining the team at Austin Health.
