Council welcomes funding announcement

Thursday, 27 September 2018

Council welcomes the recent announcement confirming the State Government’s funding commitment to the Queenscliff Cultural Hub project, and the Hon. Lisa Neville’s offer to chair the Project Control Group (PCG).

“Council is delighted at the State Government’s announcement of funding for the Queenscliff Cultural Hub,” said Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor, Cr Susan Salter.

“We look forward to working with Lisa Neville on this important project for the Borough of Queenscliffe community,” said the Mayor.

The State Government announcement will result in a formal funding agreement that will shape the governance of the Hub project. As the formal legal funding agreement for the Queenscliff Cultural Hub is not yet in place, the respective roles of all project stakeholders have not been finalised.

When the funding arrangement is in place, Council will be in a position to provide more detailed information about the project governance arrangements.

“Given the level of planning and advocacy to secure funding from State and Federal Governments, Council is looking forward to progressing the Queenscliff Cultural Hub project,” said the Mayor.
