The Coffs Coast Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

SPORT play­ers, coaches, work­ers and spec­ta­tors will ben­e­fit from $10 mil­lion worth of up­grades at a pop­u­lar sport­ing park on the Coffs Coast.

The State Gov­ern­ment fund­ing will help Coffs Har­bour City Coun­cil bring the staged de­vel­op­ment of the Coffs Coast Re­gional Sports Hub to life.

“This project will add to the ex­ist­ing Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park which is recog­nised as a premier re­gional sport­ing fa­cil­ity, but it is cur­rently at ca­pac­ity,” Mem­ber for Coffs Har­bour, An­drew Fraser said.

“The Coffs Coast Re­gional Sports Hub is a ma­jor project max­imis­ing the po­ten­tial of the precinct as a mul­tisport fa­cil­ity.

Up­grades in­clude three fields with sub­sur­face drainage and Aus­tralian Stan­dard light­ing, a new amenity block, ex­ten­sion to ex­ist­ing ameni­ties, a new car park, con­nec­tiv­ity through the precinct and a busi­ness case for the pro­posed next stage – an in­door sports fa­cil­ity.

Coffs Har­bour City Coun­cil Gen­eral Man­ager Steve McGrath said work on the three year project will com­mence as soon as they get the fund­ing agree­ment in place.
