Baldivis sporting complex in pipeline

Sound Telegraph

The City of Rockingham has begun its community consultation phase following the purchase of 19.41 hectares of land on Eighty Road for a new sporting complex in Baldivis.

Purchased at a price of $9.725 million, the land will be used to build a major sporting facility over several stages.

Stage one of the project is set to feature playing space equal up to four senior-sized AFL ovals, supported by one senior and junior clubroom facility and is expected to cater for most of the main summer and winter sports codes.

Latter stages of the development will include outdoor hard courts and a multi-purpose indoor recreation centre.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the site at Eighty Road was selected because it provided enough land to develop a multi-purpose sport and recreation complex that was conveniently located.

“We will work with local residents, sporting groups and other potential stakeholders to ensure we build a facility that provides a range of sporting and recreation opportunities,” he said.

“A major facility like this will not only be a valuable asset to the local community, it will also be able to cater for larger regional events and competitions.”

The City will now complete detailed site planning for the complex.

“The Baldivis District Sporting Complex will play a vital role in the community’s long-term fitness, health and welfare, and will provide important recreation, sporting and social opportunities for many generations to come,” Mr Sammels said.
