PARLIAMENT HOUSE, Canberra: We need an additional post office in Wellington Village in Rowville in my electorate. This is just a few kilometres away from the Stud Park Post Office, but that post office is now almost at capacity and there is an enormous growth corridor out the Rowville direction down Wellington Road.
I have been working with the Wellington Village owners and some of the traders there as well as speaking to many residents in my electorate, all of whom would like to see additional postal services there.
We have had many meetings with Australia Post senior officials. They are examining the matter. They are getting some positive indications but we are not there quite yet. I would like to commend to the parliament that this would be a good initiative and would be very much valued by the residents of Aston.
