As part of Council's commitment to providing improved sporting facilities at G.R. Bricker Reserve, we are currently planning for the roll-out of several improvements identified within the 2019 Master Plan. These improvements are outlined in the concept plans and include:

Redevelopment of the sports pavilion to meet growing demand for the tenant clubs

Replacement of the existing athletics storage shed

Installation of new sports lighting to the oval

Relocation of the existing cricket nets to align with Cricket Australia guidelines

Improved pathways, lighting and wayfinding will also form a significant part of the master plan improvements and are proposed for completion following the pavilion development.

This $6M project is jointly funded by Council ($3M) and the State Government ($3M), with the pavilion redevelopment expected to cost $4.5M.

Council has been working closely with the Sports Clubs and Dog Obedience Club on the current and future needs for the pavilion redevelopment. A clear vision and principles for the project has been jointly developed by the clubs.

Council is now seeking community feedback on the proposed improvements that aim to:

Provide facilities that are fit-for-purpose and meet the needs of the sporting clubs, and community members, using it now and into the future

Provide inclusive and welcoming designs for all ages, genders, abilities, and backgrounds

Promote safe and optimal functionality to accommodate club, social and community use and participation.

The concept plans, sports lighting plans and vision and principles can be found in the document library.
