The Shire has approved a development application for a new country club.

The club has been a recreational hub within the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale since 1957, but a larger facility was needed to meet the demands of the Shire’s rapidly growing population.

The Serpentine Jarrahdale Shire recently approved a development application for the new country club to be built on the east of the South West Highway, close to the Thomas Road intersection in Byford.

It will include function rooms, meeting rooms, kitchen facilities, a children’s play area, bowling greens and a multi-purpose sporting pitch, which will all be available for community use.

Shire chief executive Richard Gorbunow said the project strongly aligns with the Shire’s Strategic Community Plan principles.

‘By actively collaborating with our thriving community, we can enable the creation of these multi-purpose spaces and support the need to accommodate a diverse range of interests, lifestyles and cultures,’ he said.

‘Not only does this solution provide a highly flexible facility in an area that allows for increased shared use within the community, it also enables the Shire to then engage with investors to increase services within the Byford town centre.

‘Moving into the future, this kind of sustainable development will also increase localised employment opportunities.’
