The construction of a new sports pavilion that meets the participation demands and sporting clubs needs.
The Melrose Park change rooms and amenities are at the end of their useful life. Designs have been developed in consultation with the Melrose Football Club. The new sports pavilion building will address the identified amenity deficiencies such as lack of female change facilities, additional accessible public toilets, storage and community space with canteen facilities.
The NSW Government is providing $350,000 through an election commitment towards female friendly facilities. Council has been successful in securing $257,000 through Stronger Country Communities program round 4 for the project while Melrose Football Club is also contributing to the project.
Due the damaged caused to the existing building from fire, it was demolished. Temporary facilities have been funded through collaboration between the Melrose Football Club, Albury Wodonga Football Association and AlburyCity.
