Where is the project up to?

Construction program has been updated to allow for traditional construction methods of rugby league and soccer amenities buildings. The program will allow both rugby league and soccer to retain their current amenities buildings and playing field areas for the 2022 season.

At this stage:

  • The amenities buildings and netball court construction RFQ will go to market in November 2021
  • Field lighting works are underway
  • The netball court removal, cricket net construction, demolition of existing nets and temporary turfing of playing field contract has been awarded. Works will commence in November 2021.  


What is Council proposing to build as part of the Croudace Bay Sports Complex?

In line with the Master Plan, we will be constructing new amenities buildings, netball courts, expanded cricket nets, grassed fields and walking paths.

When are the works expected to be completed?

The works will be completed in stages over the next two years, with Stage 1 and 2 expected to be completed by mid 2023.  

How many trees are being removed as part of the project?

We will be removing between 50-60 trees in total. While there is a requirement for tree removal to allow for the new sporting infrastructure, Council will be installing nest boxes and competing replacement plantings within the site. Tree species proposed will be similar species to what is already on-site.

What kind of approval process did the Croudace Bay Sports Complex go through?

The approval for this project was completed under the State Environmental Policy (Infrastructure) 2007.
