DESIGNS for an updated pavilion at GR Bricker Reserve in Moorabbin have been approved.
Council received $3 million from the state government three years ago to develop the facility. Another $1.5 million of ratepayer funding has been allocated to the project as well.
The ground is home to the Moorabbin Little Athletics Club, Omega Cricket Club, the Racing Rugby Club and the Moorabbin Dog Obedience Club.
Kingston councillor Hadi Saab said “council have endeavoured to make sure all tenants, as well as the local community, have been able to have their say on the concept plans for the pavilion redevelopment. We have listened to the feedback and used it to make adjustments to both the pavilion design and the wider Master Plan implementation works.”
“We still have some work to do make sure our final designs capture the needs, and address any concerns, of the clubs and the community. For example, we will be engaging an acoustic consultant to help identify opportunities for noise reduction from the pavilion and dog run, we’re shifting the social room to the front of the building further away from residential properties and we’re making sure the sports lighting doesn’t spill into residential properties,” he said.
The plans include a brand new pavilion and a dedicated indoor/outdoor space for dog club activities.
