TENNIS COURT MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

There are 21 individual tennis venues across the Shire that provide 71 tennis courts; 61 of which are actively used. Council officers audit these facilities frequently and this data, together with information on facility use, is used to develop a four year maintenance program.

As part of this program, we have recently commenced resurfacing works at Rokewood, Sutherlands Creek and Napoleons.

The work involves repairing cracks, application of a new acrylic surface and line marking.

Works at Maude have been postponed due to inclement weather.


SMYTHESDALE OVAL UPGRADE

Works include:

  • demolition – cricket wickets, fencing
  • excavation
  • goal post installation
  • new concrete cricket wicket
  • sub‑surface and surface drainage infrastructure
  • spectator fencing
  • installation of 150mm compacted depth turf sand capping
  • establishment of a natural turf sports surface fit for Australian Rules Football and Cricket comprised of a mix of warm season (Couch) and cool season (Rye) grasses
  • existing irrigation system is to remain and be modified to fit new design levels with a new irrigation control system to be installed.

Work to the surface is complete, with the turf establishment period underway. Some minor works to the perimeter and finishing touches to be completed.

Due to weather conditions, matches on the oval have been postponed until further notice. We’ll keep you updated.

MEREDITH - PATH OF THE IBIS ROTUNDA

We are delighted with this project! The Path of the Ibis Rotunda, located along the Coolebarghurk Creek in Meredith, has recently had work undertaken to replace its roofing.

The old roof required replacement due to general wear and tear. Council Officers worked with the Community  to restore the roof back to its original glory, taking care not to damage any of the artistic elements located on the structure.

Works are complete.


BANNOCKBURN SOCCER PAVILION

The Bannockburn Soccer Pavilion is a significant project for Council.  This project was identified as a priority in Council’s Recreation Strategy, the Bannockburn Community Infrastructure Development Plan, and the G21 Football Development Plan. 

The facility incorporates change rooms, amenities, multi‑purpose room, first aid area, commercial kitchen, storage areas, perimeter fence and coaches' box to service the recently constructed soccer pitch.

Construction is now complete and Council is awaiting the official opening.


BANNOCKBURN CRICKET NETS

Works included construction of three individual cricket training nets that can be converted into one full‑size multi‑use synthetic training area.

Construction of the new nets also addressed ongoing maintenance issues, serviceability and overall safety aspects of the previous facility. 

Construction is now complete and Council is awaiting the official opening.
