Start: Early 2018 Finish: Late 2026



Cockburn Coast Oval will be located on the corner of McTaggart Cove and Cockburn Road in North Coogee. In 2018 as part of the feedback received for the Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct Study, there was strong support for a new sporting field to be built in North Coogee.
As such, due to financial considerations and available resourcing, the project had been split into two stages: 

  1. Stage 1 - development of a fully irrigated sports oval, car park, sports lighting and minor supporting amenities
  2. Stage 2 (scheduled for 2025/26) - development of a clubroom building.

The City undertook more focused community consultation in March 2020 and August and September 2021 with a view of enhancing and adding value the existing concept design created in 2018. The City initially intended to construct Stage 1 in 2022 before designing Stage 2. However, the pre-tender estimate for Stage 1 exceeded the available budget due to the current global economic conditions of high inflation, high construction costs and a tight labour market.

The City will proceed with designing Stage 2 in the meantime, with the revised vision to build both stages simultaneously. Upon completion of the designs, the City will issue a public tender for construction.

The overall cost of the two staged project is $13.7M (including land acquisition costs). The initial amount allocated to Stage 1 delivery was $1.7M.
