The City of Casey in partnership with the Victorian Government, is investing over $2,873,000 into the redevelopment of the Casey Fields Cycling Precinct.
The City of Casey was successful in receiving funding towards the project from the State Government with a contribution of $1.125 million towards the shared use pavilion and associated infrastructure. Additionally $250,000 was received from Sport & Recreation Victoria towards the BMX racing track.
The Casey Fields Cycling Precinct redevelopment will include construction of:
- A BMX racing track
- A new pavilion to be shared with existing cycling user groups and support a new BMX Club
- Installation of additional car parking.
It is the first BMX racing track for Casey providing infrastructure that will enable state and national competitions. Later in the year as construction progresses a new BMX Club will be formed ready to move in to the new facilities which are currently scheduled for completion in March 2017.
Works on the $18 million Casey regional basketball and netball facility expansion at the Terry Vickerman Building in Cranbourne East are underway.
Since the first sod was turned in late January, early works have progressed including establishment of the site boundaries, storm water works, preparation and excavation of the site, pouring of the building foundations and the floor slab.
Passers-by or visitors to the centre will start to see the structure form over the next few months as the structural steel is installed and the pre-cast concrete panels (partial walls) are erected.
The redevelopment will provide an additional five courts, including a premiere show court, and visitation is expected to rise from 337, 000 to around 780,000 visitors per year once work is complete.
This project is funded by the City of Casey in partnership with the Victorian Government.
On 19 May 2015 Council adopted two separate Master Plans for the Tooradin and Rutter Park Recreation Reserves. The Master Plans were developed in consultation with the existing user groups and recommended a range of projects to improve the standard of the reserves to meet the needs of the present user groups and the local community.

Council has begun the process of completing the elements listed within the Master Plan which includes oval works, floodlighting installation, car park improvements and the construction of a new pavilion.
Works are expected to be delivered by March 2017.
The construction of a tennis pavilion is the first priority project from the adopted Tooradin Recreation Reserve Master Plan.
The pavilion will include amenities, change and social room that will provide an inclusive environment to retain and attract new members to the club and grow its membership.
The City of Casey was successful in receiving $50,000 funding for the project from the State Government’s 2014-2015 Community Sports Facility Program.
The project will be completed by November 2016.
Works to convert the former athletics track at Lawson Poole Reserve in Cranbourne into two full sized soccer pitches are now well underway with drainage and irrigation now almost completed. In the coming months the new reserves will take even further shape, with both pitches to be seeded and top soiled, before the floodlighting, perimeter fencing and player shelters are installed.
The overall project is due for completion in late 2016 and will be another step completed in Council’s Leisure Facilities Development Plan to deliver more Soccer Facilities in the City of Casey
The Old Cheese Factory Master Plan is a large body of work that will identify what aspects of the site are currently working well, along with areas that require improvement to meet the ongoing demands at the site.
These demands include increasing bookings from a range of groups based at the site, functions, playground & BBQ’s, Farmers Markets and events and also the Homestead Café located at the site.
The plan will ensure that those needs identified in the Casey Arts Facility Development Plan, Heritage Concepts and Site requirements are taking well into consideration in developing a plan that is deliverable at the site over the next 5 – 10 years.
Once a consultant has assisted in developing a plan that considers all required elements it will be available for public comment.
Stage 1 of the Endeavour Hills Community Precinct is underway. The project will deliver:
