Earthworks have begun on the site of the proposed Cockburn Coast Oval in North Coogee and we need community input to help finalise the facility’s design.
Development of stage one of the oval will not take place until late this year but early site works have begun on the corner of Cockburn Road and McTaggart Cove at the Shoreline estate.
Initial earthworks are being completed by Development WA (formerly Landcorp) before the site is handed over to the City for further work to transform it into a community sporting field ready for use in early 2021.
Completion of the active sporting reserve’s $1.5m first stage includes development of a bore-irrigated multi-purpose sporting field including a full senior size Australian Rules Football oval, a cricket pitch and parking,
City of Cockburn Recreation and Community Safety Manager Travis Moore said the City was seeking feedback from the community, clubs and residents about their priorities for the Cockburn Coast Oval in readiness for the project’s second stage.
Residents and interested parties have until 27 March to complete a survey at Comment on Cockburn, attend a pop-up info session at Barrow Park 4-6.30pm on Wednesday 18 March, post a letter or send an email.
“Excluding the land acquisition, the City expects to spend $4.25m to complete the two-stage project through a combination of developer contributions and municipal funds,” Mr Moore said.
“We are delivering the playing field component of project earlier than the original 2025/26 timeframe, following community input during completion of the Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct Study which identified a shortage of sporting oval space in the North Coogee/Coogee area.
“The clubroom and other supporting infrastructure will be delivered in 2025/26.”
