Sport space call

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

THREE new multi-use sports re­serves will be needed in the City of Kala­munda by 2036, ac­cord­ing to a new re­port into the area’s pub­lic open space.

The re­port rec­om­mends that the City hold for­ward plan­ning for at least three more multi-use sports re­serves, about 10ha in size, over the next 20 years.

A pre­vi­ous land­fill site at For­rest­field North on Brand Road has been iden­ti­fied as one po­ten­tial sports space.

How­ever, the costs as­so­ci­ated with re­me­di­at­ing the site to be a func­tion­ing sports space would need to be in­ves­ti­gated.

An of­fi­cer-level re­view of the ex­ist­ing ca­pac­ity of venues in the City con­cluded Hart­field Park was at ca­pac­ity.

The rugby league club had no of­fi­cial home and was tem­po­rar­ily based at the cricket club. The soc­cer club was ex­pand­ing and needed more space.

Un­der the Hart­field Park master­plan, the hockey and tee ball clubs will be re­lo­cated to the Pony Club.

This would en­able the rugby league and soc­cer clubs to use the hockey club ground but this could only be a short­term so­lu­tion due to con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion of th­ese clubs and re­stricted space.

The re­view found Scott Re­serve, Maida Vale Re­serve, Kostera Oval were cop­ing with us­age. Ray Owen Re­serve was reach­ing ca­pac­ity.
