What is a masterplan?

    A masterplan is an over-arching, long term document to assist in the management of an area, often with a 10+ year timeframe.

    Why is the City developing a masterplan for Challenger Reserve?

    The Community Recreation Facilities Plan, which was endorsed in 2019, recommends developing a masterplan to investigate co-location and amalgamation of facilities (not necessarily clubs) to incorporate:

    • Critical upgrade of sports floodlights at Challenger Reserve
    • Demolition of Challenger Pavilion
    • Installation of synthetic cricket pitch and associated works to enable a relocation of South Perth Junior Cricket Club from Victoria Park to Challenger Reserve
    • Redevelopment of multipurpose community building to accommodate exclusive use and shared spaces for Manning Bowling Club, South Perth United Football Club, Manning Tennis Club and South Perth Junior Cricket Club.

    What could be included in the Masterplan?

    The Masterplan could include:

    • Upgrade of floodlights
    • New facilities – public toilets, pitch/court/rink upgrades, pathways, playground, car park, park furniture, new buildings
    • New/upgraded landscaping.

    Have any Masterplan works taken place already?

    Yes, the City recently completed the sports oval floodlights upgrade, tennis court lighting and cricket pitch installation. Future works will be subject to approval of annual budget allocations and sourcing external funding.

    When will the Masterplan works happen?

    The works will be subject to annual budget allocations. Some works may happen soon whilst others, such as buildings, may take longer.
