Fa­cil­ity costs up

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth Manning -

THE an­tic­i­pated cost of the Man­ning Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity de­vel­op­ment has in­creased to more than $18 mil­lion.

Ear­lier this year, the project was ex­pected to cost $16 mil­lion, but it is now $18.8 mil­lion.

James Miller Oval works and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency ini­tia­tives were among the works whose value had in­creased.

Tonight South Perth coun­cil will de­cide whether to en­dorse a fi­nal de­sign re­port.

In Septem­ber, the City held two com­mu­nity in­for­ma­tion ses­sions and used feed­back from th­ese to en­hance the project.

The cost of the oval de­vel­op­ment in­creased from $480,000 to $1.2 mil­lion but will in­clude de­mo­li­tion of the sports pavil­ion, new turf, new play­grounds and new park fur­ni­ture and ex­er­cise equip­ment.

Fund­ing will come from the City, land sales and a $1 mil­lion Lot­tery­west grant.

Con­struc­tion should fin­ish in Au­gust 2016.
