Council Welcomes $11M Funding towards an Indoor Sports Facility at Tuggerah
Council's Acting Director Environment and Planning, Andrew Roach said the Complex was always designed to be built in two stages and this funding will bring it a step closer to realising its full potential to attract mass participation events to the region.
"We are very pleased to have the NSW Government commit to funding of $11million which will go a long way in helping Council progress stage two to deliver a multi-purpose indoor sporting facility for a range of activities, change rooms, amenities, storage as well as canteen and catering space to complement the existing outdoor sporting fields," Mr Roach said.
"Since opening in 2019, the current multi-use outdoor sporting and recreational facility has already attracted over 81,000 visitors to the region, injecting over $10M in our local economy.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said delivering stage two would provide a significant boost to the benefits already flowing to the region from the first stage of the Complex.
"We have already seen in such a short time since the opening last year that the venue is bringing in the types of events that provide a significant boost to the region's economy with flow on effects to small business, employment and community well-being," Mayor Matthews said.
"I commend Council staff on their ongoing efforts to seek funding for the second stage of works and thank the State Government for getting on board with this exciting second stage. I look forward to more good news on this project."
The $11million funding towards stage two works is provided by the NSW Government's Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund.
The Complex's stage one $23.71million project was made possible with a $10 million grant from the Australian Government's National Stronger Regions Fund and $13.71 million investment from Council.
