Frankland Park

21 June 2019

Expressions of Interest – Summer Sporting Clubs

The City is seeking expressions of interest by Friday 21 June from summer sporting clubs about the future use of Frankland Park, on the corner of Rowley Road and Frankland Avenue, Hammond Park.

This time period will enable sporting clubs to undertake due diligence and governance requirements should they need to re-locate.

Contact: The City’s Recreation Services Department prior to submitting an EOI on 9411 3444 or recreation@cockburn.wa.gov.au.

Please note, the Hammond Park Junior Football Club will be the primary winter sporting club at Frankland Park; therefore winter clubs do not need to express their interest.

Environment

The City has been working with the federal government (Department of Environment) in refining the concept plan to reduce the overall footprint of the development in regard to bushland; and to ensure that infrastructure is built within areas identified as being in poor condition or degraded.

Recently, the Minister for the Environment under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 has decided the proposed development of Frankland Park is not a ‘controlled action’ and as a result planning for the project can proceed and will be required to be assessed once further designs progressed by the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.

Next steps

Further project updates will be posted to this page as the project progresses.
