Council has released the Master Plan for the proposed Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Sports Complex.

“The Regional Sports Complex has been in Council’s planning in various forms over the last six years. The latest Master Plan has been developed after we were invited to prepare a business case for the first stage of the facility under the NSW Regional Sporting Infrastructure Fund,” Queanbeyan-Palerang Mayor, Cr Tim Overall said.

“The first stage of the complex allows for four soccer pitches, suitable for Youth League, Women’s League and Premier League; two first grade hockey pitches; and associated club rooms, amenities and car parking. Variable LED lighting will also be installed to a maximum of 500 lux.

“We have a proud sporting heritage and a facility like this will provide the sportspeople of today and tomorrow the facilities to excel.

“The master plan will assist Council to facilitate the staged development of this new regional sporting precinct. It has been developed with the input of local sports clubs via the Sports Council and it is now open for the wider community to have their say.”

Future stages of the complex include a basketball/indoor sports stadium, an administration building, a child care building, an aquatic centre, further car parking and public realm development.

Comments on the Master Plan are open until 5 October. Go to yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au to view the plan and make comments.
