The head design consultant for the Dubbo Regional Sports Hub has been appointed, marking another significant milestone for the landmark project
Premise, a company with a footprint in the Dubbo region, will be responsible for developing preliminary designs and assisting in preparing project requirements for Stage 1 of the $23.3 million Indoor Multi Sport Facility which will feature PCYC, basketball, gymnastics, indoor hockey and netball courts.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the Indoor Multi Sport Facility will provide an all-weather venue for an array of sports and activities.
“The Dubbo Regional Sports Hub will develop and support western NSW’s sporting talent,” Mr Saunders said.
“I welcome the appointment of head design consultants, Premise, and look forward to continuing to work with the Dubbo sports community to deliver a world-class Regional Sports Hub.
“One of the key components of the funding secured for this project was that, where possible, local and regional companies were involved in order to stimulate our economy and I’m pleased that has been the case with the head design consultant.”
The Dubbo Regional Sports Hub will be developed on Charles Sturt University land and is being delivered by a group comprised of the NSW Office of Sport, the Department of Regional NSW, PCYC and Charles Sturt University.
The group hosted workshops with key user groups this week, which will inform the design of the indoor facility.
“Local input is vital to ensuring we develop a Regional Sports Hub that meets western NSW’s current and future sporting needs,” Mr Saunders said.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and we will continue to engage community groups and state sporting organisations at all stages of the process.”
