North Park work starts

Construction of a multi-million-dollar club room development for Stawell’s North Park will be underway this month, with project leaders expecting the upgrades to be completed by December.

Northern Grampians Shire Council mayor Murray Emerson said residents of houses surrounding the park would have started to receive flyers detailing key construction information.

Cr Emerson said project leaders had looked to minimise the impact of the development for park users and nearby residents.

He said the council had taken into consideration feedback from Stawell Recreation Advisory Group and community members regarding site work parameters, site access, parking and time restrictions on project operations.

“2020 is shaping up to be a great year for sport in the Northern Grampians Shire,” Cr Emerson said.

“With these new clubrooms beginning to be constructed, the Great Victorian Bike Ride returning to the Grampians, and our local clubs gearing up for another great year, it’s a golden era of sport for our residents.”

BLR Provincial Construction Pty Ltd won the construction contract and has worked with council staff to establish a project timeline.

Upgrades to North Park will include construction of multi-sport, female-friendly and unisex change rooms, as well as other public amenities and social spaces to promote further participation in sports and activities that operate out of the park.
