The Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre wrote to me about their concerns about lack of funding for maintenance and facilities upgrades and the lack of clarity of the process for getting funding and Council priorities.

The Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre provides vital services and facilities to the Boroondara community. I have attended numerous meetings and events there, and know it is greatly appreciated by locals.
I note that the Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre needs facilities improvements including bigger room sizes to cater for the demand for larger class and meeting sizes. Funds are also needed for basic maintenance including fixing leaky roofs and new carpets.
I will advocate for the Boroondara Council to implement transparent and clear processes for setting priorities and timetables for funding of major facilities and infrastructure improvements.
Here are some more photos of the Boroondara Transition Town event I attended at the Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre in 2010.
