The concept plan includes floodlighting and a sports amenities building at Grandis Park next to Joseph Banks Secondary College.

Councillors voted at last week’s meeting to support the City’s recommendations, which noted a grant application for $660,000 would be made to the Department of Sport and Recreation for the $3.4 million project.

The building design includes change rooms, a first aid room, toilets, kitchen facilities and a multi-purpose space for community use.

Cr Dianne Guise said it was a “badly needed facility” and Cr Frank Cvitan agreed it would be important for the area.

“It’s certainly something that is required and as quickly as possible,” he said.

Construction will start in May next year.
