Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My adjournment request is to the Minister for Police. I am very grateful that she is in the chamber as we speak, and I hope to get a positive response to the action I seek, which is for the minister to join me at a public forum in Nunawading with regard to residents who normally have access, and always have, to the Nunawading police station — those in Donvale, Mitcham, Blackburn, Nunawading and Blackburn North — to discuss with them and consult with them on the closure of public access to the Nunawading police station.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My adjournment request is to the Minister for Sport. The action I seek is that the minister provide the Ringwood Saints Baseball Club, the Ringwood women’s cricket club and the Ringwood Junior Cricket Club with $400 000 for new clubrooms at Proclamation Park through the Sport and Recreation Victoria major category grants.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My adjournment request is to the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for him to provide Eastwood Primary School with $50 000 so that the students may be able to have the benefit of appropriate evaporative cooling in their new school building.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My adjournment request is to the Minister for Health. and the action I seek is for the minister to accompany me out to Maroondah Hospital to talk to and consult with my community members and residents, as well as those from surrounding communities, about their views on combining the breast cancer centre with hundreds of additional public car parks in the one single construction.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — The matter I wish to raise is a matter for the Minister for Planning and relates to a proposed development at 42–58 Nelson Street, Ringwood. The minister in this case is the responsible planning authority for the land. The proposal is for three 10‑storey developments adjacent to the Mullum Mullum Creek.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My request is directed to the Minister for Education. The action I seek is for the minister to join me on a visit to Norwood Secondary College to hear from the principal, Andrew Sloane, school council members, parents and students. The minister, when in opposition, visited Norwood Secondary College in the middle of 2014 to look at the facilities. What he would have seen at the time was a school built in 1958, with run‑down facilities, extraordinarily old portables, science and arts facilities that are in an appalling state, as well as no modern learning spaces. Indeed Norwood is a replica of my old high school, and the last significant work done on the school was on a commonwealth library back in Gough Whitlam’s era.
Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — My request is to the Minister for Finance, and the action I seek is to ensure that the City of Whitehorse is provided with negotiating terms for the former Nunawading Primary School site on a restricted community use basis, offering a significant discount for our local community to retain the site. The City of Whitehorse needs to be able to make a decision on whether it will or will not purchase the former site so that our community is able to have some certainty about what will happen with the site, which is in a prominent position on Springvale Road in Nunawading.
