Infrastructure & Buildings
Start: Mid 2018
Finish: Mid 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 can proceed and will be required to be assessed by the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation once further designs progressed.
Notably, the City has refined the concept plan to reduce the overall footprint of the development in regard to bushland; by ensuring that infrastructure is built within areas identified as being in poor condition or degraded. Once this process with the state government has been completed, the intent is to complete a series of community consultations to inform the key components of the facility development.
At this stage the overall intent of the development is to provide the following:
- A multi-purpose community sporting facility
- Car parking
- Two AFL size sporting ovals
The overall anticipated cost of the project is $9.3M. There has been $400k carried forward to 2019/20 to continue working with the state government, and develop detailed designs and relevant management documentation should approval be provided.
