Draft Landscape Master Plan – Bernie Mullane Sports Complex
Submissions Close 09 August 2016
Council is undertaking investigation and design that will upgrade the Bernie Mullane Sports Complex at Marella Avenue, Kellyville to accommodate future urban growth, and allow more diverse use of one of our premier recreation facilities. We are now calling for public submissions on the draft Masterplan.
The key components identified in the Master Plan are:
- Replacing fields one and two with a synthetic grass surface to improve playing capacity
- An extension to the Recreation Centre for two full size courts
- A new water play area to enhance the existing playground
Additional works include the reconfiguration of the dam, construction of additional car parking and associated road access way, new shared pathways, provision of additional park furniture, upgraded spectator viewing areas, new floodlighting, and landscaping.
The removal of the dam and replacement with car parking facilities, together with the construction of synthetic fields is envisaged to be the first stage of the redevelopment.
Given the expected population growth as a result of the adjacent rail corridor, significant extra demand will be placed on Council to provide more recreational areas. The most cost efficient method of meeting this demand is to better utilise the facilities Council already owns and manages, rather than purchasing additional land at significantly greater costs. The upgrade of existing turf playing fields to synthetic surfaces is an appropriate method of increasing capacity.
A plan of the proposed Draft Landscape Master Plan for Bernie Mullane Sports Complex is available in the attachments on this page.
Submissions have now closed.
