Council welcomes commitment for new pavilion at Bruce Comben


Hobsons Bay City Council has welcomed a commitment from independent candidate for Point Cook Shwetali Sawant to secure $3 million for the redevelopment of the sports pavilion at Bruce Comben Reserve in Altona Meadows.

The redevelopment would include additional changerooms, a public toilet, improved storage and a covered viewing area.

The pavilion upgrade is a key feature of the Bruce Comben Reserve Master Plan, which also includes the proposed Western Aquatic and Early Years Centre. Ms Sawant has also committed to securing $40 million towards the nearby aquatic centre.

The pavilion is home to the Altona Roosters Rugby League Club, Seabrook Cricket Club and Westside Touch Association.

Mayor of Hobsons Bay, Cr Peter Hemphill, said improved facilities were required to keep pace with the rapid growth of the tenant clubs.

“Council recognises the importance of the Altona Roosters Rugby League Club in the state’s rugby competition,” Cr Hemphill said.

“It is the largest rugby league club in Victoria, and a powerhouse in the competition.

“About a quarter of its 26 teams are female, and that will probably continue to proportionally increase in the coming years.

“They need dedicated changerooms and larger social facilities, which will also be welcomed by the Seabrook Cricket Club and Westside Touch Association.”
