Background

Council is continuing its investment in local sporting facilities, upgrading Dingley Village’s Chadwick Reserve to meet growing demand for junior AFL facilities.

The project has been split into two stages with Stage 1 including conversion of the existing soccer field to a junior AFL oval and the installation of sports field training lights. Consultation for stage 1 has concluded with construction works well underway, with the aim of commencing games at the site from April 2020. You can view the project pages for earlier consultation in Related Projects box on the right-hand side.

Stage 2 includes the construction of a new pavilion and other reserve improvements. Consultation for Stage 2 is now underway.


Stage 2 Consultation

Council has been working closely with key stakeholders including the Dingley Village Community Association (DVCA), sporting clubs and the Project Steering Group to develop a set of design and usage principles to help inform a design brief for the new pavilion and reserve improvements.

Now, we’d like to know what you think about the design and usage principles.

The design and usage principles have been grouped under the following five key themes:

  • The building’s look and feel
  • Pavilion use
  • Public toilets
  • Graffiti/anti-social activity
  • Broader site opportunities

Actions have also been listed, to highlight what these principles could translate to from a design perspective. Please visit the Document Library to the right to download a copy of the design and usage principles. You can also access a full copy of the Stakeholder Workshop Report.

Draft concept plans are also available for download in the Document Library.


Stormwater Drainage Improvements
Council’s engineers have identified the opportunity to construct a large 1200mm diameter drain through Chadwick Reserve as part of an integrated approach to this project.

The plan in the Document Library shows the alignment of the drain. This has been designed to address the flooding that has been occurring at the intersection of Howard Road and Plaza Crescent.

The proposed drainage improvement will be constructed in two sections:

Part A: Works opposite the new sports oval are planned to commence during winter 2020. This will include the removal of a large pine tree beside the pavilion.

Part B: Works from the pavilion to Howard Road are planned to commence in early 2021. Closer to the time of construction an information bulletin will be provided to residents near the road intersection, with more detailed information in relation to the construction works and key contact details of the project team.
