Funding Goal for Council Sports Ground

Shoalhaven City Council has been successful in obtaining funding for six Shoalhaven sporting facilities under the Stronger Regional Communities Grant.

Mayor Amanda Findley thanked the NSW Government and South Coast MP Shelley Hancock for the $738,725 grants which will be instrumental in providing the installation of new drainage and irrigation systems to Council’s highly utilised sports grounds.

One oval that has needed significant assistance is Sanctuary Point Oval, which has had drainage problems for many years.   Oval surface drainage will be installed to decrease waterlogging and flooding, and to extend the use of the oval. Often sports have been cancelled due to not being able to use the fields, due to excess water.

Sporting facilities that will benefit from the grant include Ulladulla Sports Park, Bernie Regan Sporting Complex and the Nowra Showground.  Other fields being investigated for new infrastructure are Bomaderry Oval, Callala Sports Field, Drexel Park and Finkernagel Oval.

Mayor Findley said, “This is a great result for the community and another example of how local and state government can work together to get things done, with Council also allocating funding towards these projects.”

Improvements for these sporting grounds will roll out over the next 20 months.
