Shire of Mundaring to upgrade Darlington Pavilion

The council has asked Darlington Sports and Recreation Association to provide a detailed design with a breakdown of costs for the new community meeting space to include plans for a veranda, small office, toilets and outdoor entertaining area.

The association will apply for Lotterywest funding and councillors agreed to consider a contribution of $100,000 for earthworks and sewage upgrades, as part of the corporate business plan for 2016/17.

Shire involvement in the pavilion upgrade previously focused on the project being a fully community-funded and built project.

The council noted concept plans and costings by Shire staff for improved parking at Darlington Oval to complement the Darlington Pavilion project.

Councillors agreed to lease the pavilion for 12 years to the community, with the Shire maintaining responsibility for bookings of the facility.
