Infrastructure & Buildings
Start: Mid 2018
Finish: Late 2021
Frankland Park Recreaion Centre will be located in the south-eastern corner of Frankland Park (Wattleup Road/Frankland Avenue, Hammond Park). The intent is to commence construction in late 2020 or early 2021, with completion mid to 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.
State and Federal Government environmental approvals have now been received and designs will be finalised in late 2020.
