Smart Wins Synthetic Surfaces Work

Smart Wins Synthetic Surfaces Work
January 22, 2010

The Smart Connection Company has begun work with Stonnington Council in developing a synthetic sports surface feasibility study to assess and develop clear strategies for the current and future provision of sports surfaces throughout the municipality.

With limited land available for additional sports fields, parks or open spaces within Stonnington local government area, the study will assess participation demands, understand the extent that existing facilities can be further utilised to meet demand and address the impact of the drought and water restrictions on natural turf playing fields.

Martin Sheppard, Managing Director of the Melbourne-based consultancy explains that "by exploring the opportunities and feasibility of installing synthetic sporting surfaces the study will provide Council with direction in relation to potential locations, type and range of surfaces available, management models, financial requirements, potential users, environmental considerations, potential for strategic partnerships and the benefits of synthetic sports surfaces."

Banyule Council have also appointed Smart Connection Company to deliver a feasibility study into the establishment of synthetic football (soccer) pitches over the next ten years including prioritising venues, management approaches and a funding strategy.
