A leisurely ap­proach

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE City of Bel­mont has unan­i­mously ap­proved pur­su­ing the op­tion to build a new leisure cen­tre next to the Bel­mont Oa­sis Leisure fa­cil­ity.

Es­ti­mated to cost about $40 mil­lion, the new fa­cil­ity will al­low Bel­mont Oa­sis to re­main open while the project is built.

Bel­mont coun­cil was pre­sented four op­tions by pri­vate com­pany AECOM for the aquatic cen­tre’s re­de­vel­op­ment at the Novem­ber 29 In­for­ma­tion Fo­rum last year.

AECOM were hired in March 2016 to de­velop a master plan for the cen­tre.

Fund­ing, the fi­nal de­vel­op­ment con­cept and po­ten­tial man­age­ment will be in­ves­ti­gated by the City be­fore a fi­nal re­port is pre­sented to coun­cil for ap­proval later this year.
