Works to develop a new multi-sport pavilion in Pambula will commence in November, with the tender awarded to Edwards Constructions.
Council’s Parks, Aquatics and Recreation Manager, John Grady said the redevelopment will considerably enhance the facilities for increased use by sporting and community groups across the region.
“Contractors will be undertaking the demolition of the existing clubhouse and surrounding structures prior to Christmas,” Mr Grady said.
“The construction of the multi-sport pavilion will then start in the new year and is expected to be completed before the end of 2024”.
Council’s Mayor Russell Fitzpatrick said the building will replace three ageing and non-compliant buildings and become the central hub of the site.
“The new facilities will be able to cater not only for local competition and training, but also provide opportunities and facilities to host sport development pathways and regional coaching development,” Cr Fitzpatrick said.
“This is the major item in the adopted Pambula Sporting Complex Master Plan and will provide benefits for all users”.
Member for Bega, Dr. Michael Holland said “It is always exciting seeing the first signs of new works and the Pambula community will have their opportunity to witness this milestone as the old structures are removed to make way for their new multi-sport pavilion in the coming weeks.”
“2024 will be a year of anticipation as the new structure emerges as part of the Pambula Sporting Complex Master Plan.”
Once complete, the facility will have adaptable unisex change rooms, umpire’s rooms and facilities, kiosks, adaptable social rooms, public toilets including an accessible toilet, accessible parking and pathway connections, a covered veranda and viewing areas, service connections and secure storage areas.
Temporary fencing and signs will be in place for the duration of the works.
