Local Sporting Facilities the new ‘Town Halls’

By Belinda 10/08/2018

Have you got a shovel ready sporting facility project or at least a well worked up idea? The new Sport Australia (formerly the Australian Sports Commission) has released $30m in funding for small to medium sporting facility projects that develop community sporting hubs and encourage inclusion. The Community Sport Infrastructure Program dubbed as creating the new “Town Halls” of communities positioning local sporting facilities as central gathering places for all is open to sporting clubs, community groups, Councils and some schools. Up to $500,000 in funding can be accessed and submissions close on the 14th September 2018 so you need to act quickly.

As part of the requirements the applicant needs to provide a business case or project plan.  Tredwell can assist in preparing these so get in touch to see how we can help.


We love seeing our plans come to life on the ground…….just ask the CEO Peter Harder from The District Council of the Copper Coast in regional South Australia.

The Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack officially opened the redeveloped Copper Coast Sport and Recreation Leisure Centre, Kadina on the 26th July 2018. The facility is a leading example of a community sporting hub in a regional area, it has four indoor courts including a show court, an indoor swimming pool, state of the art fitness facilities, tennis courts and function rooms. The 1000 kids from the adjoining school also use the facility on a daily basis for sport, fitness, performances and special events.

Neil was a delighted member of the crowd as it was Tredwell who conducted the feasibility / master planning process back in 2013 that got the ball rolling and assisted in securing $10.3million dollars for its redevelopment.
