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 was allowed to proceed and as required, was assessed by the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation once further designs were progressed.
The new sporting reserve will be located in the south-eastern corner of Frankland Park (Wattleup Road / Frankland Avenue, Hammond Park). The City developed the draft layout for the site in conjunction with members of the Hammond Park Residents Association and future sporting club users. The design aims to minimise impact on the surrounding bushland whilst providing the level of amenity required by the community.
What will the sporting facility contain?
At this stage the overall intent of the development is to provide the following:
- A multi-purpose community sporting facility
- 150 car parking bays
- Two AFL size sporting ovals
- LED floodlighting.
The overall anticipated cost of the project is $9.3M. $400k was carried forward to 2019/20 to continue working with the state government, and develop detailed designs and relevant management documentation should approval be provided.
