Newhaven soccer pavilion upgrade kicks off

Friday 1 April 2022

Bass Coast Shire Council has started work to extend the Soccer Pavilion at the Newhaven Recreation Reserve.

The Reserve caters for Phillip Island Breakers Soccer Club, the Westernport Tennis Club, Phillip Island and District Cricket Club and the Bass Coast Breakers AFLW team. The local primary school, residents and visitors also make good use of the Reserve.

The project will involve the partial demolition of the existing pavilion and the construction of new change rooms and toilets to the rear of the existing building. The new section will include fit for purpose change rooms, showers, toilets and a storage area. In addition, there will be dedicated toilets for spectators, which will also be accessible to the Westernport Tennis Club, local schools and casual hirers of the Reserve.

This $700,000 project has been made possible through a $400,000 grant from Sport and Recreation Victoria, with Council contributing $300,000.

Work is expected to be completed by early July.

This project will include the use of large plant and machinery which might be noisy at times. Council understands that these works may present an inconvenience to nearby residents and users of the Reserve and appreciates their patience. The contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction. Appropriate traffic/pedestrian control measures will be in place during the works.
