Next stage ‘ready by Fe­bru­ary’

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - GOOD MORNING FRASER COAST -

DE­VEL­OP­MENT of the Sports Precinct’s net­ball and first foot­ball fields are on track to be com­pleted early next year, with sport clubs ready to take up games at the site by Fe­bru­ary.

Fraser Coast Coun­cil CEO Ken Diehm said a top­soil sup­plier would be sought over the next few weeks and con­trac­tors would be fin­ish­ing con­crete path­ways to pro­vide dis­abil­ity ac­cess.

Build­ing man­u­fac­turer Ausco Mod­u­lar was awarded the con­tract to build the new club­houses in Septem­ber.

Mr Diehm said sur­fac­ing of the net­ball courts would fin­ish by the end of No­vem­ber with the aim to have net­ball and Oz­tag groups play­ing on the site by Fe­bru­ary.

De­sign work and cost­ing pur­poses for the project’s ring road are also un­der de­vel­op­ment.

“There has been a lot of in­ter­est gen­er­ated in the site and we’re in the process of pre­par­ing draft re­leases for Foot­ball Queens­land and the Her­vey Bay Oz­tag and Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tions,” Mr Diehm said.

“We’re hop­ing to have the build­ings in place for the new cal­en­dar year.”

Earth­works on the site first started in July last year.

The Fraser Coast Re­gional Coun­cil’s web­site claims the net­ball courts and foot­ball fields will be de­vel­oped as part of stage one, while a PCYC and premier field are listed for de­vel­op­ment un­der stage two.

Stages three to five in­volve the de­vel­op­ment of fields for rugby league and AFL, ten­nis courts, a run­ning track and ad­di­tional satel­lite club­houses.
