NSW Government to fund business cases for redevelopment of Sydney’s Brookvale Oval and Penrith Stadium
The NSW Government has announced that it will allocate funding towards the development of business cases for the renewal and revitalisation of Brookvale Oval and Penrith Stadium as multi-use community assets.
The product of extensive lobbying by the NRL for “mini Bankwest Stadiums” across Sydney, the funding allocation follows a similar commitment in the recent NSW Government budget to develop a business case to revamp Jubilee Oval at Kogarah.
Reversing the 2010 move to no longer back suburban venues, acting NSW Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the vision for upgrading these community assets is to ensure they are utilised by all sport codes, grassroots and professional, as well as entertainment, concerts, cultural events and local markets.
Minister Lee stated “we know there is interest in communities to overhaul community grounds so we are firstly doing the planning work to make sure the costs stack-up.
“We are serious about continuing our investment into community infrastructure and the business cases for these suburban grounds will give us the best insights on the community benefits for revitalisation.”
“When we build and renew community infrastructure we get the benefits for the people of NSW. Revamping infrastructure like local grounds in Sydney’s South, North and West is a catalyst for jobs and economic growth, as well as providing communities with uplift in amenity and liveability.
“Just look at how Bankwest Stadium has become a fan favourite, no matter what sport you follow.
“It’s important to get the basics right with these business cases so we can make informed decisions regarding any future investment into suburban grounds.”
Work has also officially commenced on the $75 million redevelopment of Concord Oval in Sydney’s Inner West which will transform the suburban oval into a world class sporting, recreation and community hub.
The Redevelopment of Concord Oval (ROCO) project is an initiative of the NSW and Federal Government in partnership with Canada Bay Council and Wests Tigers.
The Redevelopment of Concord Oval is scheduled for completion in early 2022.
