Exciting renewal works are about to take place at Webber Reserve to provide fit-for-purpose and fully accessible change rooms for local sports clubs who use the reserve.
Currently the change rooms do not meet the needs of the sporting clubs who use them, with the existing layout not being functional for the clubs, internal fixtures being in poor condition and existing drainage being undersized.
Upgrades include refurbishment of the existing change rooms, club rooms and public toilets, and the construction of a new modular change room building with universal access to the oval. Works will be done in stages to minimise the impact to the playing season for the local clubs who use the reserve.
Sports clubs set to benefit from the upgrades include the Willagee Bears Rugby League, Willagee Bears Womens Tag, Willagee Bears Darts, Willagee Bears Netball, Rugby League Samoa WA, Cook Island Rugby League WA, Fiji Mens Nines Rugby League WA, Kapa Haka Maori Group, Oceania Rugby League WA and Bicton Junior Cricket Club
The project will cost approximately $1.48 million and is being fully-funded by the City through our capital works program however an application has been made to the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to access $411,500 funding from the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund.
The Webber Reserve Change Room Renewal is the first of a $12.7 renewal project of all our change rooms, with all change rooms in the City set to receive an upgrade within the next 20 years to improve capacity and functionality to meet current and future demand.
Prioritisation for renewal was decided by the facility’s condition and usage, with an emphasis on improving universal access and female participation.
