Works to develop a new multi-sport pavilion in Pambula will commence this month, with a works tender awarded to Edwards Constructions by Bega Valley Shire Council.
Council’s Parks, Aquatics and Recreation Manager, John Grady said the redevelopment will considerably enhance the facilities for increased use by sporting and community groups across the region.
“Contractors will be undertaking the demolition of the existing clubhouse and surrounding structures prior to Christmas,” Mr Grady said.
“The construction of the multi-sport pavilion will then start in the new year and is expected to be completed before the end of 2024”.
Mayor, Russell Fitzpatrick said the building will replace three ageing and non-compliant buildings and become the central hub of the site.
“The new facilities will be able to cater not only for local competition and training, but also provide opportunities and facilities to host sport development pathways and regional coaching development,” he said.
“This is the major item in the adopted Pambula Sporting Complex Master Plan and will provide benefits for all users.”
Once complete, the facility will have adaptable unisex change rooms, umpire’s rooms and facilities, kiosks, adaptable social rooms, public toilets including an accessible toilet, accessible parking and pathway connections, a covered veranda and viewing areas, service connections and secure storage areas.
This project is funded with a $3.29 million grant from the NSW Government and a $1.65 million contribution from Council.
