Baldivis District Sporting Complex

  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Planning and design

Project summary

A district open space will be delivered in Baldivis to provide for sports club training and competition, as well as community recreation.

Baldivis is experiencing rapid growth, particularly in the number of young families living in the area. This creates a high demand for sport and recreation facilities to play an important role in providing opportunities for social interaction and skill building, and creating stronger, safer and more inclusive communities.

We purchased a 20 hectare site on Eighty Road to develop the Baldivis District Sporting Complex (BDSC), which will provide for sports club training and competition, as well as passive sport and recreation for the wider community.

Planned facilities

Playing fields and pavilion

Due to the need for active open space in the Baldivis area, the first part of the project will provide three playing fields.

A pavilion will be built between the two primary fields that includes: 

  • changerooms for players and umpires
  • first aid
  • toilets
  • storage
  • social space.

Outdoor Recreation Space

A youth outdoor recreation space is proposed to be located on the site of the sporting complex.

Community consultation closer to the time of delivering the project will help to decide what kind of activities and equipment will be included.

Master Plan

The Master Plan Report

The Baldivis District Sporting Complex Master Plan is the document that summarises all the site layout considerations, including developing in an environmentally sensitive way and retaining the current amenity where possible.

It includes a layout map showing the location of all the facilities that will be on the site, and building concept designs.

​The Draft BDSC Master Plan was advertised during October 2018, including a community information session held at Mary Davies Library and Community Centre on Tuesday 16 October. This advertising period gave the community an opportunity to tell us what they thought of the plans.

​Following review of public comment submissions, the final BDSC Master Plan was endorsed by Council on 18 December 2018.

Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF)

This project is supported by the State Government, through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, which is a major supporter of community sport and recreation facilities in Western Australia.

Sport and recreation builds stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities.

When we play sport, our whole community wins.

Project update

Tenders have been received for civil construction works that prepare the site for development, such as earthworks, roadworks and drainage.

The assessment report will be considered at the December 2019 Council meeting and, if approved, civil works are likely to start on site early next year.

Residents and schools in the immediate area will be notified by mail before works start.
