Plan goes to tender
CITY of South Perth council has endorsed design plans and an $18 million price tag for the Manning Community Facility development, for the purposes of a tender process.
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.
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 and new turf, playgrounds, park furniture and exercise equipment. Funding will come from the City, land sales and a $1 million Lotterywest grant.
