The West Woolgoolga Sports Complex is an important project for the region. Our community has been fighting to make it a reality for over 10 years.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $10 million to build the new facility.
“This new facility will allow Woolgoolga to host major sporting and cultural events,” Mr Hogan said.
“This project is all about creating and supporting local jobs.”
“It will create 141 jobs during construction and support many more into the future.”
“It will add $12.8 million to our economy during construction and $630,000 per year into the future.”
“The Multi-Purpose Centre includes two indoor courts, a stage, kitchen, café, multi-purpose rooms and amenities.”
“When complete, this facility will cater for AFL, cricket, basketball, netball and touch football.”
Coffs Harbour City Council Mayor Denise Knight said the announcement was fantastic news for the Woolgoolga and Northern Beaches communities and important for our region’s growth.
“I’d like to congratulate and applaud the local community for their commitment over the years to this project. Their unwavering drive and enthusiasm has been inspirational. It’s also been very exciting to see all three levels of government come together and throw their support behind the project.”
State Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said it was great to see further funding following the $8 million he secured last year.
“I want our community to have access to the best possible recreation facilities so they can lead healthy and enjoyable lives,” Mr Singh said.
