Stan Twight Reserve Clubroom Redevelopment

  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Planning and design

Project summary

We're upgrading the facilities to meet community needs.

The clubroom at Stan Twight Reserve has been identified as needing an upgrade and expansion in order to be functional for current and future community needs. The reserve site layout will also be reconfigured to maximise the active open space available.

This project is currently scheduled for construction in the 2022/2023 financial year. There is a requirement for a revised site analysis and master plan that takes into account previous studies of the site, functional requirements for the stakeholders of the reserve, and the City’s need to meet participation trends and maximise use of the facility.

Background

Stan Twight Reserve is located on Hennessy Way in Rockingham and is bounded by Dargin Way to the east, Merrimac Loop to the west and a drainage channel to the north. The reserve consists of five separate lots. The clubhouse and change room facility was initially constructed in 1992 and had extension works completed in 1998/1999.

The reserve was designed to accommodate district level cricket in the summer. After two turf wickets and turf wicket training nets were installed in 1995, Stan Twight became home to the Rockingham Mandurah District Cricket Club. The club called this reserve home until the Lark Hill Sportsplex regional facility was opened in 2008. The Rockingham Hockey Club was the winter tenant at Stan Twight Reserve until they too relocated in 2008 to Lark Hill.

After the relocation of the two clubs, Shoalwater Bay Cricket Club became the summer tenant, and the Safety Bay Football Club relocated to the reserve in 2009 from Georgetown Reserve to be the winter tenant. Stan Twight is currently the home to these two clubs. The reserve is also used by the Rockingham Masters AFL Club and to host Cricket Country Week matches run by the Western Australian Cricket Association. 

In 2016 the City developed an initial master plan for the Stan Twight Reserve. The purpose of the 2016 Stan Twight Reserve Master Plan (STRMP) was to determine a set of actions to be implemented to meet community need. This included defining the infrastructure and facilities that should be delivered over the life of the plan, and the expectation of how the reserve will function into the future.

The project is scheduled for construction in the 2022/2023 financial year and there is a requirement for an updated site analysis and master plan to be developed.

Draft site layout - share your thoughts

The draft site layout plan community consultation period has now ended. Responses will be collated and recommendations incorporated into the master plan.

The purpose of the Stan Twight Master Plan – site layout plan is to ensure that this important active reserve is developed in such a manner as to ensure the reserve and associated infrastructure meets current and future user group requirements.

The sports currently played on the reserve include Australian Rules Football (AFL) in winter and cricket in the summer. The draft site layout plan proposes a modified layout of the reserve to continue to accommodate these two sports with two senior cricket ovals in summer and two senior AFL ovals in winter. The proposed layout will provide a strong link between the playing fields and the upcoming clubroom extension.

The draft site layout plan, shown below, depicts the location of the facility and reserve layout, including:

  1. Clubrooms; and
  2. Proposed placement of senior playing fields and supporting infrastructure.
