Infrastructure & Buildings
Start: Mid 2018
Finish: Late 2021
Frankland Park Sports and Community Facility will be located in the south-eastern corner of Frankland Park (Wattleup Road/Frankland Avenue, Hammond Park). The intent is to commence construction in early 2021, with completion expected in late 2021.
The City submitted a draft concept plan for the site to the state government, with an application for external funding. In early 2018, the City was advised it would receive $1.5M through the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund.
In early 2019, the City had received advice from the federal government by the Minister of Environment under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 that the proposed development of Frankland Park is not a ‘controlled action’. As a result, planning for the project could proceed and would be required to be assessed by the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation once further designs progressed. Subsequently, a clearing permit was received for the project in April 2020.
Community consultation was undertaken in May 2020 with 80% either happy or very happy with the proposal.
Following, the final detailed designs and tender documentation was prepared and the project was released for tender in October 2020 with a view to start construction on site in early 2021.
What will the new sporting reserve include?
The new development will include but not be limited to the following:
9 Coleville Crescent,
PO Box 1215, Bibra Lake DC,
Western Australia, 6965
