The upgrades, funded by Port Stephens Council, in part by developer contributions, will include new change rooms, canteen, accessible and unisex bathrooms, referees rooms and new first aid rooms.

Port Stephens Council’s Capital Works Section Manager Phil Miles says the works have been designed by Council’s own structures and landscaping team to ensure continuity with the local area and save ratepayer funds.

“The decision to use our own skilled architects strikes the balance between meeting the community and heritage needs without the cost variation from using an external consultant.

“We try to design, develop and construct projects in-house as much as possible to ensure continuity across projects, reduce cost and maintain intellectual property.

“It also provides more experience and motivation for our employees to see their own ideas and visions become a reality for the greater community,” he said.

Port Stephens Mayor Ryan Palmer says once complete, the new facilities will enhance the lives of the community by improving accessibility, inclusion, health and wellbeing.

“These projects will replace the existing dated buildings and improve access to quality infrastructure for sporting groups and the wider community,” he said.

Works for both Stuart Park, Hinton and Boyd Oval, Medowie are expected to commence in April 2021.
