The Committee for Greater Shepparton was established to unite the region's business and community leaders to influence public policy, advocate on issues to strengthen the economy and make the region a more vibrant place to live. The Committee is supported by over 80 of the most influential businesses, community organisations and statutory authorities from the region.
The Victorian Government has recently announced $313m in its 2018/19 Budget to upgrade infrastructure and enable new VLocity trains to operate on the Shepparton line. This is such a great win for Greater Shepparton.
The Committee for Greater Shepparton calls for stage 2 of the G.V. Health re-development to be funded.
An independent assessment commissioned by the Committee shows that the full stage 2 investment, including mental health and cancer facilities, is likely to cost between $272 million and $374 million. This is on top of the $171 million allocated to stage 1 by the Andrews government in 2016.
Goulburn Valley Health’s buildings are at the end of their life cycle. As positive as the stage 1 funding has been, a commitment to stage 2 is now critical to complete the redevelopment. Comparative analysis of current regional hospital asset value shows that of all major centres, Greater Shepparton has one of the oldest and run-down hospitals in the state– it is time for a new one.
