Multi-Purpose Indoor Sports Facility

Council encourages participation in a range of sporting and recreational pursuits and endeavours to support facilities and services that enable a healthy and active community.

Local sporting groups have been campaigning for an indoor stadium at Urunga for approximately ten years and would like it used for sporting activities such as indoor basketball, football, netball and volleyball.

To establish the viability of the proposed facility, Bellingen Shire will develop a feasibility study for the proposed Urunga Multi-Purpose Indoor Sports Facility.

The feasibility study will include:

  • Consultation with relevant stakeholders and the wider community
  • Reviewing and considering all existing documentation
  • Analysing the demand for an indoor facility
  • Identifying three operational/management models
  • Considering whole of life costs
  • Preparing a cost/benefit analysis
  • Assessing the proposed site which was identified by the community and is located at Urunga Recreation Reserve within NSW Crown Reserve 27307
  • Identifying three additional locations that may be suitable alternatives for the facility
  • Preparing three sets of concept plans

This study is a preliminary investigation and is being funded by developer contributions that were specifically allocated towards this project when Council adopted the Community Facilities & Open Space Infrastructure Section 94 Developer Contribution Plan at its ordinary meeting in February 2014.

Council's future financial sustainability is dependent upon generating sufficient funds to meet the costs of maintaining assets. This feasibility study is therefore very important because it will assist Council to make an informed decision about whether or not the proposal is financially viable over the long term.

Once the study is completed, it will be presented to Council and be placed on public exhibition.
