Council is committed to making Pembroke Park the sporting and recreation hub for the South East Region. A Master Plan and Business Case was developed to help Council guide the growth and development of Pembroke Park. Council has been proactively applying for appropriate grant funding opportunities to complete the upgrades at Pembroke Park, as outlined in the Master Plan.
The new stadium complex includes two netball/basketball courts, gym, three offices, meeting room, four internally accessed change rooms, four externally accessed change rooms, umpires change rooms, storage, kitchen/canteen, bar, function room, parking, access and landscaping. A new access road for the stadium will be constructed off Montagu Street.
The tender for the project has been advertised and will be awarded at the September Council meeting.
Works are expected to start onsite shortly thereafter.
This project has been made possible thanks to funding from the Australian Government, Tasmanian Government and Sorell Council.
