  • Greens vow to unshackle Abbotsford Convent

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber has vowed to unshackle the Abbotsford Convent from a ban on applying for government funding.

    “Since reopening ten years ago, Abbotsford Convent has proved its economic viability, yet can’t apply for state funds due to an absurd clause in the deed granted by the Bracks government,” Mr Barber said.

    “The Abbotsford Convent precinct is thriving and wants to grow further, but can’t even present the business case it has prepared for future site improvements.

  • Greens say Planning Department needs to stop demolition works inside Palace Theatre

    Last night, City of Melbourne officers sought emergency heritage protection for the interior of the Palace Theatre in Bourke Street following demolition works that have taken place inside the theatre in the past few days.

    State Greens MP, Sue Pennicuik visited the theatre this morning and called on the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure to urgently issue an Interim Protection Order to prevent any further destruction of the famous and irreplaceable interior fixtures of the Palace.

  • Labor's half-hearted pledge short changes the Palais Theatre yet again

    Yesterday's announcement by the ALP that it will invest only up to $13.4 million to upgrade the Palais Theatre, falls well short of the estimated $40 million that is needed to restore it.

    "This pledge by the ALP just continues the total lack of commitment that Labor has shown for the Palais Theatre for more than a decade," Greens MP for the Southern Metropolitan Region and long term advocate* for the Palais said today.

  • Extra Warrnambool trains welcome

    Greens candidate for Western Victoria Lloyd Davies says today’s government announcement is a tribute to the long-running community campaign to deliver additional train services to the Warrnambool line.

    “The announcement of an extra daily service is a win for those across the south-west who have campaigned for better train services,” Mr Davies said.

    “We hope Labor back the commitment. The Greens have committed to extra train services and now even the Liberals support it. It is time for Labor to make their position clear.
