The benefits of improving Shepparton’s infrastructure will flow on to surrounding communities, a City of Greater Shepparton councillor says.JARROD WHITTAKER March 8, 2014 5:08am
Cr Kevin ‘‘Gunna’’ Ryan said it was important to recognise the municipality’s status as a regional centre, servicing a large population.
‘‘City of Greater Shepparton covers (almost) two and a half thousand square kilometres, not four square kilometres,’’ Cr Ryan said.
While Greater Shepparton has a population of 62
More than 229
Shepparton is the closest urban centre for most of these people.
Cr Ryan said Shepparton needed to be able to offer those people services.
‘‘Shepparton has got to be able to offer those services, whether it be in health, whether it be in industry, or transport to get to-and-fro,’’ he said.
‘‘What we’ve got to do is make sure with this campaign that we get those facilities up to scratch.’’
He said Shepparton had missed out substantially in capital expenditure.
‘‘The government talks about every day how they’ve got to decentralise,’’ Cr Ryan said.
‘‘I’ve been on council since 1972 and I’ve heard decentralisation used and repackaged by every government coming in.
‘‘If we’re going to look at that, where is the infrastructure money? Where is the rail? Where is the road to get these people?’’
