The Tulliallan Estate in Cranbourne North will benefit from a major new sporting facility following an official project launch today.
Construction will now commence on a $10 million community pavilion and recreational facility, which is being delivered in partnership between the City of Casey and the State Government with a $3.32 million contribution from the Growing Suburbs Fund 2019-20.
This new building will provide much needed additional infrastructure for one of Casey’s fastest growing suburbs. Features will include:
- Three soccer pitches
- One cricket oval
- A multipurpose community pavilion, including a community room, unisex and fully accessible change rooms and amenities, kitchen, office, storage, undercover gathering and terracing area
- A district level playground
- Shared path networks
- Flood lighting
- Cricket nets
- Car parking
- Public art and landscaping
City of Casey Chair of Administrators Noelene Duff PSM and City of Casey Chief Executive Officer Glenn Patterson joined Member for Cranbourne Pauline Richards MP and CEO of Football Victoria Kimon Taliadoroson on site today, to inspect the area and mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Cranbourne North community.
“As one of the fastest growing municipalities in Victoria, Casey has the significant challenge of matching a growing population with the services and infrastructure required,” Ms Duff said.
“After many negotiations with developers around what the space would be used for, Council, with the full support of the local community, has ensured this 6.8 hectare site will become a recreation space, as outlined in the Precinct Structure Plan.
“The local community will now have far greater access to sporting opportunities, and be supported to lead an active lifestyle through participation in sport and leisure activities, further improving the health and wellbeing outcomes of the community.”
It’s expected this project will be completed early in 2022.
