Works officially commenced on the construction of both the Singleton Sports and Community Centre at Laurie Stanford Reserve, and the Golden Bay Sports Pavilion at Rhonda Scarrott Reserve on 14 March. Both projects will be constructed by appointed Tenderer BE Projects.
The Singleton Sports and Community Centre will include new community meeting rooms, change rooms, first aid and umpires room, as well as a new social space and kitchen; the facility will replace the existing Comet Bay Bowling Club, Singleton Hall and Singleton Community Centre. The project is expected to be completed in March 2017 at a cost of $4.86 million with $369,000 contributed by the State Government’s Department of Sport and Recreation.
At a cost of $4.85 million the Golden Bay Sports Pavilion at Rhonda Scarrott Reserve will comprise new change rooms, an umpires’ room, first aid room, and a social room with kitchen and kiosk. The new facility will become the home of the Secret Harbour Dockers Football and Cricket Club. Construction is expected to be completed within about 12 months and the project has been supported by the State Government through the Department of Sport and Recreation which has contributed approximately $347,000.
City of Rockingham Mayor, Barry Sammels said the facilities will be well utilised by the community: “These two areas have long needed upgraded sporting facilities, and I am pleased to see the commencement of these significant facilities upgrades for the local sports teams.
“Supporting our local sporting clubs by ensuring good quality facilities helps to create opportunities for physical activity and helps to strengthen community networks and wellbeing. I look forward to these projects being completed in 2017.”
