Hume City Council is proud to embark on this project with our partners to provide our community with a state of the art sporting facility. The project will deliver hundreds of jobs during construction, plus ongoing permanent roles.
This project is part of Council’s record $443 million capital works program delivering more than 500 projects over the next four years.
Following community consultation, a Masterplan was adopted in 2019. In December 2020, further communication consultation was undertaken on the proposed playspace and landscaping. This involved a short 3-5 minute survey asking community what they liked about the concept plan and what needed to change. This feedback is currently being used to draw up the final design for the play space, landscaping and recreation facilities which will be finalised in July 2021.
When will it be completed?
The project is expected to be completed by December 2022.
This project is being delivered in partnership between Hume City Council, NRL Victoria, Melbourne Storm and the Victorian Government.
