Australia to move in to olympic village on wednesday, after being asked by PM
MELBOURNE (NEWS 1130) – Four days after moving into Melbourne’s Olympic Village, an Overnight Leader investigation has discovered they’re not the first to go.
The Village, which includes cafes, bars, restaurants, a community centre, sports track, the city’s swimming pool and a restaurant, was set to open Tuesday night and will be home to about 1,000 people – half of them families with children under 14.
The Village has been under construction for a little over two years.

Mayor Gillard was also “focused on the ongoing work for the development” and “welcoming ongoing community engagement from local resi부산 출장 안마dents.”
So, who’s planning on using the Village? It’s a big family and the plan is for it to have 30 families for a total of 400 people to live in the village.
“What this means is there will be 20 per cent of the population of that area and 30 per cent of the resident population,” Kevin Martin, a staff attorney at the University of Sydney law school, told Overnight Leader.
But the City of Melbourne’s website says they’ve given this 30 per cent figure to local residents, rather than all families.
