Yarra City Council

We are committed to creating more inclusive sporting spaces so everyone can take part in community sport.

Like all councils in Victoria, Yarra is facing challenges from the rising cost of construction, inflation, supply chain issues, rate capping and cost shifting, along with increasing pressure and demand on our services and infrastructure from a rapidly growing population.

As a result of these challenges, Council was unable to proceed with the initial concept design proposed. The revised concept design uses a prefabricated building approach which reduces construction timeframes, ensures the project is more cost effective, while still delivering what our community told us they wanted.

What’s included:

• new sporting pavilion, aiming to achieve a 6-star green star equivalent rating

• four permanent all gender change rooms

• a new kiosk

• club storage

• new social space

• new all gender public toilets, including baby change facilities in the accessible toilet

We have revised the concept design and want to check in with the community to ensure we’re incorporating the key components of the design. We will review your feedback and where feasible work to include it in the final design.
