My question is for the Minister for Training and Skills, and I ask: can the minister please provide an update on the acquisition of the Prahran TAFE site and the development of a master plan for the site? I was really pleased to hear some time ago that the government planned to acquire the site and develop a master plan. It is a really important step to realising the shared vision of the community, which is for a thriving arts and education precinct on the site. But that was some time ago, and there has been no further information or updates for the community. Prahran is well known to have a really diverse and vibrant creative industries community, and an arts and education precinct could revitalise the campus as well as the surrounding Chapel Street area. The campus tenants and the broader community need to be informed about what is happening next. When will the sale be finalised? What further plans for consultation are there? What is the time frame for the master plan to be developed? The Prahran community are very keen to be informed and to see this community vision realised.
