Sports: Draft Western Suburbs sports study

Consultation has concluded

October 2018

A decision was made at the October Council meeting to proceed with the upgrade of community and sporting facilities in line with the Western Suburbs Sporting Precinct study.

The Plan includes $66M in sport and recreation facility development projects within the western suburbs and will effectively be the CIty's guiding document for future upgrades and new developments in this area.

Read the final report here and the Council Report here (starting on page 466).

Your feedback has been captured here. Survey comments are shown here.

The plan identified opportunities for the development of new active open space, together with potential for significant redevelopment of existing facilities and reserves including:

  • Beale Park $9.11 million
  • Wally Hagan/Dixon Park $36.17M (Option 1 preferred)
  • Dalmatinac Park and Lucius Park $3.02M
  • Davilak Reserve $7.66M
  • Santich Park $1.48M
  • Watsons/Edwardes Reserve $3.22M
  • Cockburn Coast Oval $3.99M (future)

Background

In 2017, the City's draft Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan identified the need to plan for recreation for suburbs west of Stock Road which face significant population growth from 34,108 to 57,211 people over the next decade. The City appointed Dave Lanfear Consulting to work with sporting and community groups to develop the plan. This involved:

  • Extensive document review
  • Demographic analysis
  • Audit of existing infrastructure and facilities
  • Community consultation
  • Facility trends analysis
  • Analysis of opportunities to acquire additional public open space
  • Development of Master plans for each reserve
  • Estimated costings for each development

During the study of Wally Hagan/Dixon Park, a number of opportunities and constraints were identified so three potential development options have been proposed. The preferred option is Option 1 (subject to discussion with State Government agencies, with Option 3 as the next preference).

The overall costs to implement the upgrades are estimated at $64.65 million.
