Reid Oval funding on agenda: Purcell

Western District MP James Purcell has assured south west football fans that funding for Reid Oval is still on the agenda.

When the state budget was released in May it appeared the $7 million funding for Reid Oval had been overlooked.

"I've had many meetings with both the Premier and Treasurer to discuss the Reid Oval upgrades and these discussions are ongoing," he said.

"There are many funding options still on the table and my role is making sure that the full project is funded.

"We desperately need the Warrnambool Council to finalise the design and business case that was funded last year – this will certainly help me to put a strong case to the government," he said.
