Making Beaumaris a better place for local sports people

Friday, March 20, 2020

Council is renewing the Beaumaris Reserve Sports Pavilion and is inviting you to view the external renders of the building design and its location and ask questions of staff regarding the renewal.

The sports pavilion has been designed to meet the standards specified in Council’s Sportsground Pavilion Improvement Plan and will include referee and changeroom facilities that provide access for all genders. The pavilion will also include first aid facilities, kiosk, storage areas for allocated user groups and an entry foyer, that provides a sheltered area to collect participants after training and competition.

The pavilion has been designed to address the climate emergency and will feature solar panels, north facing windows to maximise use of natural light for heating during the winter months, electric appliances and water heating systems to reduce future reliance on natural gas, sensor lighting and the inclusion of water tanks to utilise storm water for toilets.

Other features of the design include realignment of car parking within the reserve to ensure no loss of spaces, inclusion of a sealed accessible car park at the entry to the sports pavilion and a path network will connect all buildings within the precinct.

The planning of the proposed pavilion carefully managed the protection of vegetation at the reserve, nevertheless it will require the removal of three trees and will require the relocation of the sportsground lighting mast located closest to the cricket nets.

To ensure the reserve maintains its natural leafy environment landscaping of the site has been included as part of the pavilion renewal.

This project does not include any works associated with the Beaumaris Arts Group Studio.

In the interest of our community’s health and safety during the ever-evolving COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision to cancel the drop in sessions that were scheduled to take place. You can ask any questions and give your feedback online here.

If you require any more information, please don’t hesitate to contact Sara Townsend, Recreation and Events Coordinator on 9599 4318 or email stownsend [at] bayside.vic.gov.au.
