The Nationals Member for Gippsland Darren Chester has thrown his support behind Latrobe City Council’s plan to create a green, vibrant space for shoppers, businesses and visitors in the heart of Morwell.

Mr Chester said governments at all levels needed to support existing retailers and service providers and help build up the small business sector to strengthen the local economy and create jobs.

“Morwell has suffered several blows recently, including the announcement two major retailers at Mid Valley Shopping Centre will close and 60 workers at the Hazelwood mine will be out of work earlier than expected,” Mr Chester said.

“I was pleased to recently join with Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull to announce $2 million in funding for Latrobe City Council to fund its Morwell CBD revitalisation project to transform the Morwell town centre, creating 12 construction jobs and an estimated 300 ongoing positions.”
