Aquatic Centre Update

I have campaigned for many years on behalf of residents for an Aquatic Facility in the City of South Perth / Curtin University precinct and we have been working to build support.

Big step forward for City of South Perth Aquatic Centre campaign

At the Council meeting in October, the City of South Perth resolved to proceed with preparations for a City of South Perth Aquatic Centre, including:

  • Advancing work on design concepts and preferred sites to enable preparation of a detailed Business Plan to be submitted to Council before July 2019.

At the community forum I held in 2012 with local residents and sports agencies, we heard the importance of the aquatic facility being clustered with other recreation facilities; as well as the advantage of a facility that is attractive to state sports bodies.

The feasibility study funded by the Federal Liberal Government and completed in 2015 showed that the project is financially viable and would be ideally situated in the Karawara/Como precinct to leverage the population and resources at Curtin University.

This resolution is a significant step forward for our campaign and brings the aquatic centre one step closer.

Thank you for your continued interest – I will continue to work on this and keep you updated.

Please lend your support to making the aquatic facility a reality by signing my petition below.
