Location of Proposed Upgrades
Pavilion Upgrade Project
This project proposes the construction of a modular (prefabricated) pavilion at Estuary Reserve that will include a social space, kitchen and amenities and storage space as well as fit for purpose, gender neutral, change rooms and amenities meeting the ‘Football Victoria Facilities Building Development Guide.
The local sports clubs have experienced significant participation growth in recent years and current facilities are no longer appropriate. The existing temporary facilities do not meet modern gender neutral and universal design standards.
The completion of this project will deliver a best practice community sports facility to support the continued inclusive participation of soccer, football and cricket in the Leopold community.
Sports Lighting Project
This development proposes to install 4 light poles with modern LED sports lighting technology and associated infrastructure to the Estuary Reserve soccer pitch. This project will support the local soccer club to meet growing participation demand through extended access to the pitch for training.
LED’s are an environmentally friendly option to installing sports lighting, reducing energy consumption whilst also providing precise lighting to a standard that will allow community sport to be played safely during the evening.
The LED technology also ensures that lighting spill is well within the Australian standards for minimal impact outside of the playing area and surrounding residents.
