Central Coast to benefit from new multi-purpose courts
CENTRAL Coast Council's northern most residents are set to benefit from a $300,000 investment in new multi-purpose courts at Tunkuwallin Oval.
The need for the new courts was identified in the Tunkuwallin draft Masterplan and will cater for basketball, netball and handball as well as an overflow carpark.
Administrator Ian Reynolds who officially opened the courts said they were the first of many new sporting facilities and other infrastructure planned to meet the needs of the Coast's growing population.
"Our population is expanding rapidly, particularly in the north and so too must the services and infrastructure we provide.
"Recreational facilities are particularly important as we want our community to be strong, happy and healthy and these enhanced facilities will deliver that.
"These new courts have been championed by all local sporting clubs, particularly the Summerland Point/Gwandalan Netball Club, who need these facilities to cater for their expanding membership base.
"This is a great example of Council and interested local groups working together to deliver the facilities our community need, want and value.
"I am looking forward to more of that to come in this new Central Coast Council."
Other sporting and recreational facilities to be finished soon include a new BMX track at San Remo and the regional skate place at Bateau Bay as well as the first stage of the Magenta Shared Pathway.
