Infrastructure & Buildings
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 has been split into two stages. Stage 1 (2020/21) includes the development of a fully irrigated sports oval and minor supporting amenities, while Stage 2 (2025/26) includes the development of a clubroom building.
Prior to commencement of Stage 1, the City undertook more focused community consultation in March 2020 with a view of enhancing and adding value the existing concept design created in 2018. The City now is in the process of appointing the required consultants to continue to develop the design and construction documentation with a view of commencing construction in mid-late 2021.
The overall cost of the two staged project is $13.7M (including land acquisition costs), whereby the total allocated to Stage 1 delivery is $1.7M.
