Construction of the new Multipurpose Clubroom Development at North Park will kick off in mid-January 2020 and is expected to be completed by December 2020.
Residents of the houses surrounding the park will have begun to receive flyers detailing key construction information that has been designed to minimise impact on park users and nearby residents.
Council has taken into consideration feedback from the Stawell Recreation Advisory Group and community regarding site work parameters, site access, parking, and time restrictions on project operations.
“2020 is shaping up to be a great year for sport in the Northern Grampians Shire,” Northern Grampians Mayor Murray Emerson said.
“With these new clubrooms beginning to be constructed, the great Victorian Bike Ride returning to the Grampians, and our local clubs gearing up for another great year, it’s a golden era of sport for our residents.”
The construction contract for the clubrooms was awarded by council on 11 November to BLR Provincial Construction Pty Ltd who have worked with council to establish the project timeline.
The upgrades to North Park will include construction of multi-sport, female-friendly and unisex change rooms, as well as other public amenities and social spaces to promote further participation in sports and activities that operate out of the facility.
The upgrades have been made possible by grants including $700,000 from the State Government, $500,000 from the Federal Government, $150,000 from the Swifts Football and Netball Club and a significant contribution by the Northern Grampians Shire Council.
