    “The $13.7 million redevelopment will create a range of health, social and economic benefits for local sporting clubs and the local community,” Mayor Wilson said.

    “The first phase of the redevelopment will incorporate the construction of three brand new purpose-built buildings for cricket, football, rugby and lacrosse.

    “These new, larger facilities will help attract more people to take part in sport and recreation, with a particular focus on encouraging greater participation among women and young people.

    “The redevelopment will double the number of available changing rooms, meaning that we can significantly increase the number of teams using them and get more people out playing sport.

    “For the first time, the buildings will also include new unisex changing rooms that are female friendly.

    “The new buildings will be leased by the tenant sports clubs and will be community facilities available for the whole community to use and hire.

    “The redevelopment of Brighton Oval is a joint initiative that is progressing through the hard work and commitment of the City of Holdfast Bay elected members and administration, all levels of government and the sporting clubs.”

    The $13.7 million redevelopment of Brighton Oval is funded by the Federal Government ($5 million), State Government ($2 million), and the City of Holdfast Bay ($6.7 million).

    Building work is anticipated to start in May, with the construction of the three new buildings due for completion in April 2020.

    The redevelopment will also include improved community spaces, a new playspace, shelters, seating and carparks with the project expected to be completed by Autumn 2021.
