Enhancements to the heritage grandstand.
This consultation is now closed.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our proposed design for Brunswick Street Oval sporting and community facilities.
Councillors considered your feedback at a council meeting on Tuesday 31 May 2022. Find out more about the meeting, and read the minutes, on our website.
We’ve made changes to our proposed design for reinvigorating the Brunswick Street Oval sporting and community facilities. These changes were needed to ensure upgrades to the historic grandstand meet heritage requirements, while still providing much-needed facilities for sporting clubs and the community.
We asked you to tell us what you thought about the new proposed design. We are also exploring options for site-specific public art, and we asked for your ideas.
You were able to share your feedback by filling in the form below by Sunday 1 May 2022 at 11:59pm, or by coming along to our in person consultations at Brunswick Street Oval which were held on:
In early 2019 we spoke to the sporting clubs, community groups, local residents and other users of the Brunswick Street Oval facilities. You told us you want this much-loved corner of Edinburgh Gardens enhanced and updated, whilst maintaining its heritage.
We then asked for your feedback on a concept plan, which we developed based on the feedback we received from the community, as well as an analysis of the needs of the sporting clubs and community groups who use the facilities, both now and into the future.
The previous concept plan proposed new community and sporting facilities as additions to the grandstand, but this did not meet heritage requirements.
This new proposal will develop two new buildings: a sports pavilion for cricket and football to the west and a tennis and community room building to the north of the grandstand. This means there will be minimal impact on the exterior of the grandstand building, which is heritage listed.
The existing community room building adjacent to the grandstand will be removed, restoring the prominence of the heritage grandstand in the landscape.
The proposed designs for the sports pavilion and tennis and community pavilion are two storeys, to ensure public open space is maximised.
