Toowoomba Regional Council advances sports arena project
Toowoomba Regional Council has released details of its plans for the development of a regional sports complex in the suburb of Charlton, advising that the project is reaching its detailed design stage.
Expected to cost nearly $200 million over the next 20 years, the Board has approved the business case and master plan for its Toowoomba Area Sports Precinct (TRSP) which it will now seek to identify as with designation of local government infrastructure to pave the way for future development of the site.
Toowoomba Regional Council Environment and Community Committee Chair Councilor James O’Shea said the new sports arena, which will be delivered in stages over many years, will meet the growing demand for sporting and recreational facilities and would help attract state and national sporting events. .
Councilor O’Shea noted that “an analysis of the demand for sports facilities has shown that there is a shortage of facilities to serve the area, with many facilities at full capacity and beyond.
“We also don’t have a standard regional facility that can attract higher levels of competition. The TRSP will change all that.
“The precinct has been designed to provide a mix of high quality indoor and outdoor pitches, courts and facilities, as well as a district-level leisure park.
