The Baldivis District Sporting Complex is an upcoming project from the City of Rockingham that will allow the City to meet a significant shortage of active reserve space in Baldivis for present and future sporting groups.
To be located on Eighty Road, opposite Kendall Boulevard, the complex will provide about eight hectares of open space, two pavilions, an indoor recreation centre, 18 outdoor hardcourts, a nature playground and a youth space.
On 16 October, residents across the City will get the chance to learn more about the complex during a community presentation on the project’s master plan, which will be delivered at the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre.
Running from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, the information session will give residents an in depth look at the aims, objectives and key outcomes of the exciting project, as well as the extensive work the City has undertaken to inform the master plan.
City of Rockingham 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,” Mayor Sammels 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.”
In addition to the community presentation, the master plan will also be available for public comment from 10 – 31 October.
The master plan will be available on the City’s Share Your Thoughts webpage.
Mayor 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% of all native vegetation and 65% 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.”
RSVPs to the presentation are essential and can be made by phoning the City on 9528 0333 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
