Liberal MLA Steve Doszpot.

STEVE Doszpot has announced a $320,000 commitment to improve facilities at the Calwell District Playing Fields.

“In next year’s budget, the Canberra Liberals will provide a grant of $300,000 to upgrade sporting facilities at Calwell which is home to the Brindabella Blues Football Club and also utilised by Little Athletics and many other sports,” Mr Doszpot said.

“The local clubs have been lobbying for upgrades for years including; a new clubhouse facilities, lighting, fencing, car parking and maintenance and seating upgrades. The Canberra Liberals will also provide two further grants of $10,000 in following years for maintenance.

“Tuggeranong doesn’t have the required facilities for Premier Football and our commitment will bring the ground up to standard. In the past, Tuggeranong has hosted events such as the Kanga Cup, but has since lost that ability.

“The Canberra Liberals are committed to community sporting improvements as demonstrated by our plans to provide $550,000 for Greenway Oval and now $320,000 for Calwell. I look forward to these commitments enhancing local sport for Tuggeranong families,” Mr Doszpot concluded.
