Dubbo Mayor Ben Shields said work on the Victoria Park number two and three carparks, identified in the Victoria Park Master Plan, would improve accessibility at one of the region’s most significant sporting precincts.
“A new, formalised carpark was incorporated into the Victoria Park Masterplan, which was successful in receiving funding from the Stronger Country Community grants for the redevelopment of the Victoria Park Precinct,” Councillor Shields said.
“The masterplan identified a community need for safe, off-street parking which would improve the appeal and access to the sporting precinct.”
The new carpark will be asphalt and will comprise of 70 car spaces, including two dedicated disabled spaces, and a bike rack.
“The next step is to go out to tender and employ a suitable contractor to undertake the work, as per the recommendation of the Victoria Park Redevelopment Advisory Committee,” Cr Shields said.
This project is funded by the NSW Government Stronger Communities Fund.
