Draft Broadview Sports & Recreation Precinct (Yarnta Tutu yarta) Master Plan

Have Your Say

Community Consultation for this project has now closed.

The draft Master Plan for Broadview Oval / Yarnta Tutu yarta is intended to describe Council’s overall vision for the future of the precinct to allow for feedback from key stakeholders and the community.

The draft Master Plan provides an overview of a series of improvements to the precinct, so that each component can be delivered in future years in a manner that aligns with the overall vision.

The consultation period closed with a number of community members contributing feedback and suggestions. Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation.

Feedback received during consultation was provided in a report to Council at the 28 July 2020 meeting, at which time Council determined that further investigation was required into the options relating to the location of the future Community Health and Fitness Hub (incorporating the Broadview Football Club).

What is the Draft Broadview Sports & Recreation Precinct (Yarnta Tutu yarta) Master Plan?

The Draft Master Plan was first developed a number of years ago in consultation with the community and key stakeholders, as Council sought to put in place an overarching strategic document to guide future improvements to this important sporting and recreational precinct. 

The Draft Master Plan for consultation includes the following features:

  • New community health and fitness hub incorporating a Football Club and fitness centre
  • Demolition of the existing football club building and expansion of car parking areas
  • Construction of a new tennis club building (accommodating both tennis clubs)
  • Replacement of the former croquet club with 4 additional tennis courts
  • Maintenance and improvement of pedestrian access from Collingrove Avenue to the Oval and surrounds
  • Increase in car parking provision including hardstand areas, trafficable lawns and amenity landscaping
  • Addition of four (4) cricket nets, with the bowler run-up area able to double as a warm-up area for football (to replace an existing public access tennis court that doubles as a half-court basketball court)
  • Establishment of a new (dedicated) half-court basketball court
  • Demolition of the existing amenities building adjacent the NW tennis courts
  • Refurbishment of the lawn bowls clubrooms and addition of a pergola
  • Replacement of an existing bowling green with artificial turf and provision of a shade across the new green, and lighting to two greens
  • New public toilets adjacent the playground
  • Installation of lighting to the running track

  • Council Workshop

    Tuesday 21 April 2020

    Council staff presented an update on the Draft Broadview Oval/ Yarnta Tutu yarta Master Plan to Council Members, discussing stakeholder consultation and feedback.

The Draft Master Plan was first developed a number of years ago in consultation with the community and key stakeholders, as Council sought to put in place an overarching strategic document to guide future improvements to this important sporting and recreational precinct. 

A number of the recreational elements of the Draft Master Plan have subsequently been delivered (such as the running track), or are currently being delivered (including improvements to the playground and dog park). With the croquet club no longer operating from the precinct, and increasing membership at the tennis and football clubs, it is timely to revisit and refresh the Draft Master Plan prior to Council endorsement.

Council is already delivering upgrades to the Rotary Centenary Playground and the adjacent dog park, both of which are located on the northern side of the Oval.

Whilst future improvements described in the Draft Master Plan are as yet unbudgeted, an overarching plan is required to ensure that there is a coordinated approach to where future development can occur without conflicting with other improvements. The Draft Master Plan can also be used to engage with government and sporting bodies when seeking funding for the improvements.
