Work has begun on the second largest investment project ever undertaken in the Shire, the $ 16.5 million redevelopment of the Diamond Valley Sports and Fitness Center in Greensborough.
This follows the award of the contract by the Council to complete construction to McCorkell Constructions.
The works include the demolition of an existing courtyard, the construction of four new indoor netball-compliant courts, a new two-story administration building / reception building, the renovation of the restrooms and changing rooms and works to ensure that the building is fully accessible. .
The project is funded with $ 6 million from Council, $ 8 million from Sport and Recreation Victoria, and $ 2.5 million from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
Nillumbik Mayor Karen Egan said the project was the second largest project undertaken in the Shire, after the Eltham Leisure Center.
“This is fantastic news for the thousands of people in the region who use this facility for basketball, netball, squash badminton, table tennis and dodgeball,” said Cr Egan.
“The redevelopment results in a contemporary, fully accessible and suitable regional sports stadium.
“The works are badly needed and will bring the facility up to expected standards.”
Grant Brooker, Blue Lake Ward Councilor and Chair of the Inclusion Advisory Committee, said he was pleased that the highly anticipated redevelopment would result in a facility that was truly accessible to everyone in the community, including people with disabilities.
“The Diamond Valley Sports and Fitness Center was built in 1976, and while it has had some minor upgrades, it is quite outdated.
“We did install an elevator in the building last year, but a lot still needs to be done to make it fully accessible and compliant. It’s been a long journey, but it was better to get it right than fast. “
Work started this month with the opening ceremony scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
The Diamond Valley Sports and Fitness Center, operated by Aligned Leisure on behalf of the Council, is currently closed under COVID-19 restrictions.
