This consultation is open for feedback until

We are proposing to improve various sporting assets at Macleay Park including:

  • Oval reconstruction - Oval 1 (D.S. Bull)
  • Installation of a new electronic scoreboard - Oval 1 (D.S. Bull)
  • LED globe replacement of existing lights - Oval 2

These upgrades will improve public safety and provide high quality facilities to meet the needs of the community now and into the future.

Project overview

Macleay Park Oval 1 (D.S. Bull) reconstruction includes:

  • Installation of a new irrigation system on the oval
  • Upgrading the oval drainage system
  • Replacing the soil profile in order to level the playing surface at the north end of the oval
  • Laying new turf on the oval 
  • Moving the existing storage shed approximately 2 metres west of its current location
  • Replacing the turf cricket table
  • Replacing the fencing around the ground and ground access points will remain the same. 

Details for the electronic scoreboard include:

  • New electronic scoreboard proposed to be installed on the north east side of the oval away from residential houses (refer to image below for indicative location) 
  • The proposed scoreboard is LED full colour and is 3.2 metres wide x 5 metres high 
  • The structure of the proposed scoreboard will be steel (galvanised and 2 pack painted) and designed to engineers specifications.

LED globe replacement project

We are upgrading the existing sportsground training light globes to LED lighting at Macleay Park - Oval 2 (existing poles will remain, only the globes will be replaced). This installation will provide the community with energy efficient and environmental friendly LED lighting that will:

  • Support training of existing sporting clubs at the ground
  • Enhance passive recreation opportunities for casual park users
  • Direct light spill to the playing surface, away from residences
  • Reduce energy usage.
