A new sporting complex is a step closer to being built in North Kellyville after The Hills Shire Council awarded a tender for its construction during Tuesday’s Ordinary Meeting of Council.

The brand-new Stringer Road Reserve is earmarked to provide even more active and sporting opportunities for the growing suburb, which will see an additional 6,500 homes built by 2036, and many more people and families moving into the area.

The new complex is proposed to include four multipurpose natural turf fields, that could accommodate soccer and AFL during the winter period and in summer, it can be utilised as a cricket oval.

Plans also feature two full-size multipurpose basketball courts, cricket practice nets, a children’s playground, as well as an amenities building, carpark, and specialist sportsfield lighting, irrigation and drainage.

A perimeter pathway will complete the overall design, and provide access to the onsite facilities and connect to the greater Shire-wide footpath network – making it even easier to walk or cycle to and from the Reserve.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said this was exciting news for the North Kellyville community.

“The North Kellyville community are very excited about Stringer Road Reserve, so the awarding of the tender is wonderful news for local residents,” Mayor Gangemi said.

“North Kellyville is one of our fastest growing suburbs in the Shire.

“Having these plans moving forward will ensure that we will have the facilities in place to cater for this growth. More importantly, it will allow Council to build a dedicated space that supports healthy and active lifestyles, and encourages social connection and interaction for the entire community through sport and passive recreation,” Mayor Gangemi added.

Stringer Road Reserve is one of a number of parks and reserves that has been planned by Council to be built in North Kellyville, including Withers Road Reserve, which is proposed to include a nature themed playground, picnic areas, shared pathways and a dedicated kick-about space.

In addition to this, the new Samantha Riley Reserve is already under construction, as well as two new playgrounds, including one at Deepwater Circuit Reserve and the other located at Kumbatine Circuit Reserve.
