New pav­il­ion will be a boon

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Peter Long

Nickol res­i­dents could not miss the new Tam­brey Pav­il­ion, which started to emerge from the Tam­brey Oval in March and is now hav­ing its roof and walls in­stalled.

The Tam­brey Oval is the only ac­tive recre­ation space in Kar­ratha where there are no change room or pav­il­ion fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided on-site for users.

The new pav­il­ion will rem­edy this, pro­vid­ing the same level of amenity af­forded to the eastern end of Kar­ratha and sur­round­ing towns.

The build­ing in­cludes change rooms, toi­let fa­cil­i­ties, a com­mu­nity hall, a store­room, a kitch­enette and a servery, mak­ing it suit­able for a wide va­ri­ety of uses.

It will pro­vide the City with a sport­ing hub in Kar­ratha’s western sub­urbs and of­fers fur­ther venue op­tions for events, com­mu­nity groups and sport­ing fix­tures.

Once this fa­cil­ity is com­plete, we an­tic­i­pate in­creased par­tic­i­pa­tion from ex­ist­ing sports clubs based at the oval and other lo­cal groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions for whom this space would be ap­pro­pri­ate.

The fa­cil­ity will be avail­able to groups and in­di­vid­u­als through­out the com­mu­nity.

The de­vel­op­ment of the Tam­brey fa­cil­ity is funded by the City and has re­ceived sup­port from the Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation’s Com­mu­nity Sport­ing and Recre­ation Fa­cil­i­ties Fund and the Pil­bara De­vel­op­ment Com­mis­sion. The work is pro­gress­ing well. All brickwork has been com­pleted and struc­tural works and roof sheet­ing are near­ing com­ple­tion. The build­ing is on track to meet the sched­ule for com­ple­tion in Oc­to­ber.
