Lauren Jackson Sports Centre Proposed Development
An exciting two-staged development is being proposed to improve the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre, ensuring it will continue to grow as one of the region’s premier sporting and event destinations.
To make sure the redeveloped stadium will meet the needs of its thousands of users, we’re seeking your input to design the best facility possible.
So, to give us your feedback, please take part in our Have a Say process to ensure your voice is heard.
Submissions will be received up until 5pm, Thursday 25 October 2018 and should be addressed to Michael Stanton, Team Leader Leisure Facilities, P O Box 323, Albury NSW 2640 or via email.
Stage 1 Benefits
- Create a show court with a seating capacity of up to 1,400 (currently 1,100) with retractable seating to protect the playing surfaces and allow for the staging of conferences and other events.
- Bring the centre into line with modern standards and guidelines, in particular, run-offs for basketball and netball, floor plates and equipment for badminton and netball
- Improve the capacity and attractiveness of the facility for events with:
- An additional set of change rooms, referee rooms and upgrades to the change rooms.
- A more flexible facility with greater run-off areas between courts and the extension of the walkways at the northern end of all courts
- A designated first-aid room
- New shade shelters outside
- Develop new disabled and family change facilities and amenities;
- Create larger storage spaces away from the main public thoroughfares.
- Replace the roof and guttering to eliminate water leakage.
- Improve parts of the façade.
- Provision of office space and/or storage for key user groups of the facility
Stage 2 will be subject to further investigation through the development of a business case. Feedback obtained through the Have a Say process could form part of the business case.
Where to from here?
Acknowledging that Stage 1 is the priority, all detailed plans, investigations and planning requirements will be carried out over 2018/19 and 2019/20, while a detailed business case will be developed for Stage 2. AlburyCity will seek State and Federal funding for this project.
