Expressions of interest sought for new sports fields

Sport and recreation clubs are being encouraged to lodge Expressions of Interest (EOI) to use new sports fields.

Three new parks at Springfield Central Sports Complex, Fernbrooke Oval at Redbank Plains and at South Ripley will be opened within the next 12 months.

Works, Parks and Sport Committee deputy chairman Cr David Morrison said council was committed to providing quality sporting infrastructure for residents.

“Our population is increasing and these three new sports facilities are in growth areas of Springfield Central, Redbank Plains and South Ripley,” he said.

“Through this EOI it will allow council to allocate suitable times and space to groups based on organisational competency, best fit for the location and overall demand for various sports.

“The Springfield Central Sports Complex is due to be ready for winter sports in 2019.”

Cr Morrison said the new complex at Springfield Central was the single biggest expansion of sports facilities in the city’s proud sporting history.

Sport and recreation organisations are encouraged to submit Expressions of Interest to use these facilities.

Submissions close on 14 August, 2018.  Organisations should register under the category of Organizations and Clubs or key in code 94000000.
