Reinstate funding for the multi-use sporting facility at Perry Park
We the undersigned demand that the Council of the City of Sydney reinstate funding for the multi-use sporting facility at Perry Park. We believe that it is a vital facility for the growing population of the Alexandria and Green Square development. In addition, we ask that The Council of the City of Sydney lodge the current plans for the Perry Park Stadium redevelopment (drafted on behalf of council by Candalepas Associates) for DA approval as a matter of priority. There is an urgent need for a modern and practical venue for basketball, futsal, handball, volleyball, badminton, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and other indoor sports in one of Sydney's fastest growing inner city areas. The current facilities at Alexandria Stadium provided by the City of Sydney Basketball Association (CSBA) are at capacity. The stadium is unable to host large metro and interstate basketball tournaments and finals series, let alone accomodate demand for a weatherproof, indoor venue for other sports.
