City of Parramatta Council proposes to upgrade the sports pavilion building at Peggy Womersley Reserve. The project involves:
- Demolition of the existing single storey sports pavilion building,
- Installation of new two storey sports pavilion building including:
- player and referees change rooms,
- club storage facilities,
- public toilet facilities,
- community room,
- covered viewing deck (only accessible to building hirers)
- Associated landscape works including paths to meet requirements of disabled access, lighting and garden bed planting
Why is the existing building being replaced?
The current building no longer satisfies the requirements of local sporting user groups (notably inadequate changing facilities and a lack of storage) and the community. The building is also experiencing problems as an aging asset (including flooding and water seepage) and no longer meets current building standards.
Works have been proposed under standard asset renewal programs to ensure Council facilities meet the needs of the community now and into the future.
What will this mean for you?
The sports field at Peggy Womersley Reserve will remain operational for the duration of the proposed works, however, sections of the park will be required for storage of machinery and materials.
The park and surrounds will experience higher amounts of vehicle movement. Vehicle movement will be controlled by construction contractors in locations of potential conflict with pedestrians and other vehicular traffic.
All works will be conducted during standard daylight hours (7am-6pm Monday to Friday; and 8am – 1pm on Saturdays). There will be no work on Sundays or public holidays.
When is this happening?
The proposed works, once approved, will take 10 months to complete. It is expected works will commence in August/ September 2021.
