THE Inglewood Little Athletics Club was made to jump through hoops by the City of Stirling to get more storage space, says a councillor.

Cr Terry Tyzack, a patron of the club, asked the council for a bigger storeroom for the club, which was struggling with growing membership and inadequate storage space.

Cr Tyzack said the City’s report into the matter was “riddled with errors”.

“The (council) officers have failed in three months to provide an alternate plan for the club,” he said.

The report said there was “no need” for more storage space and the current space met with requirements by the sport’s government body Little Athletics WA.

An additional 60sq m storage facility to allow for the efficient and safe housing of track and field equipment, was finally approved.

Cr Tyzack said the approval was a “great win” for the club.
