RAF Update - 27 November 2020
The Recreation and Aquatic Facility (RAF) Business Plan is now available for public comment.
The Business Plan details the City's proposal to develop the RAF to provide a premier health, wellness, fitness, recreation and education hub centrally located in the City of South Perth at the existing Collier Park Golf Course in Como.
All stakeholders including members of the public are invited to provide their feedback on the Business Plan by 5pm, Friday 22 January 2021.
A report will be presented to Council at the meeting in February 2021, where it will be determined whether to proceed with implementing the Business Plan.
At the November 2020 Council Meeting, Elected Members gave approval for the proposed RAF project to progress to the next stage.
They endorsed the RAF Business Plan for public comment and approved a financial commitment of $20 million to match the $20 million already promised by the Federal Government.
The City will now seek the additional funding required for the $80 million project through other project partners, to progress the project to the design phase of the proposed world class facility.
The City will carry out further due diligence, engaging suitable independent and relevant industry and financial experts with respect to financial modelling, key operation assumptions, operating cashflows and usage projections, which will be reported back to Council.
