Ararat Rural City Council CEO, Dr Tim Harrison said the project includes upgrades to the umpire and camping change facilities, the male and female changing facilities and improvements to the social room and kitchen.

“The buildings at the recreation reserve no longer comply with current accessibility and amenity standards, with upgrade work needed to improve them for all users,” he said.

“The Council is currently investigating funding options – including government grants – and we are preparing plans and obtaining feedback from the community so we are ready to hit the ground running when funds become available.”

“The upgrade work will provide much more modern facilities for players, umpires, officials and volunteers participating in sport and events at the reserve.”

Feedback forms and the concept’s plans will be available on the Council’s website from Friday the 11th of October.
