Infrastructure & Buildings
Start: Mid 2018
Finish: Early 2022
Frankland Park Sporting and Community Facility is located in the south-eastern corner of Frankland Park (Wattleup Road/Frankland Avenue, Hammond Park). Construction commenced in early 2021, and the facility opened in April 2022. Individuals and groups can hire the facility starting July 2022.
The new development includes:
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 and construction commenced on site in early 2021.
The construction of the $10.5m Frankland Park Sporting and Community Facility is complete and the City is now seeking expressions of interests from groups or individuals wishing to become a regular hirer.
