Club funded facility upgrade

Club funded facility upgrade

The Club Funded Facility Upgrade application process provides direction for local sporting clubs and lessees seeking to upgrade the facility that they hire or lease from the City, where the City has no funding involvement for the proposed works.

This application process is designed to ensure that there is an identified need for the project and that all required approvals and licences are granted before the upgrade commences. This prevents the potential for any expensive remedial work required at the completion of the project by the club or lessee.

Projects that are of a structural nature (for example verandahs, building extensions, new buildings and floodlighting) will be managed and constructed/installed by the City in line with standard specifications. Prior to construction commencing the club or group will be required to sign a funding agreement that details the club or group will pay the City for the works and outline the payment term.

Examples of successful past projects include:

  • Installation of a defibrillator
  • Installation of external lock box
  • Installation of solar panels
  • Installation of sun shades
  • Construction of a patio
  • Installation of memorabilia

For further information contact the Sport and Recreation team on 9400 4090 (for hired facilities) or the Property Management team on 9400 4249 (for leased facilities).
