PLANS for the Baldivis District Sporting Complex have been released.

The City of Rockingham project will help address the significant shortage of active reserve space in Baldivis for present and future sporting groups.

The complex will be on Eighty Road, opposite Kendall Boulevard.

It will feature eight hectares of open space, two pavilions, an indoor recreation centre, 18 outdoor hardcourts, a nature playground and a youth space.

The City of Rockingham is holding a community presentation on the project’s master plan.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the development of the complex would deliver a range of sporting and social benefits to clubs across the City.

“The Baldivis District Sporting Complex will be a fantastic addition to the community and we encourage residents to attend the community presentation to see what this exciting project is all about,” he said.

“Once complete the Baldivis District Sporting Complex will play a key role in the long term health and wellbeing of the community and will also provide important recreation and social opportunities for many years to come.”

The master plan will also be available for public comment from October 10 to 31.

The master plan will be available on the City’s Share Your Thoughts webpage.

Cr Sammels said the draft master plan had been developed to maximise the opportunity to preserve the strong environmental values at the site.

“Under the draft master plan, 62 per cent of all native vegetation and 65 per cent of trees with hollows will be protected,” he said.

“A large portion of black cockatoo foraging habitat will be retained and the City will also plant about 90 native trees at the complex.

“The City will also implement a Fauna Relocation Management Plan prior to work starting on site.”
