Consultation has concluded

Please note: due to COVID-19 restrictions our face-to-face information session scheduled for Wednesday 25 August will now be held online. Please scroll down for registration details.

As part of Council's commitment to providing improved sporting facilities at Regents Park, we are currently planning for the redevelopment of the sports pavilion to meet growing demand for netball, cricket and AFL facilities and provide more sporting and community facilities for the local area. This project is estimated at $7M and jointly funded by Council ($3.6M), the State Government ($3.3M) and sporting club contributions ($0.1M).

Council is seeking your feedback on the proposed concept plans. The proposed development is due to commence in 2022 and will include:

Purpose built sporting facilities that meet sporting code requirements and include female-friendly change facilities

Construction of a second-story social room and community space

Pathways and landscaping surrounding the new development.

Council has worked with the sports clubs to determine the current and future needs of the reserve, developed a clear vision and principles for this pavilion project (please see document Library). This document has helped inform the draft concept plans that aim to:

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

Provide an inclusive and welcoming facility for all ages, genders, abilities, and backgrounds that will be the choice for membership and volunteerism

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


Facility management

The new pavilion facilities are proposed to be managed under lease by the Edithvale Aspendale Sporting Club who will work in consultation with the tenant Cricket and Football Netball Clubs. As part of the Club's proposed lease arrangement, a Venue Management Plan will be developed which outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Club throughout its lease period. The objectives of the Plan are to; ensure good governance and compliance with relevant legislation, support effective day-to-day management, ensure the safety of members and visitors and to minimise the impacts of the facility’s operation with surrounding residents. For more information regarding the proposed Club obligations for holding events, please see FAQ section.
