New Stadiums Now

This petition had 21 supporters

North Sydney Basketball Stadium is being knocked down and replaced by possibly the same number of courts and a movie theatre, but underground, with an estimated cost of $88 million. So where are our basketballers going be playing during the development which could take years?

North Sydney Council promises they will not leave our Bears out on the street, BUT stadium redevelopment will take at least 3 years so what happens in the meantime, with no planned start date or even finalised interim location?  There is no space at the moment in the surrounding neighborhood. Local schools give preference to their students and often do not allow outside hires.

Councils have a lot of space and sites but nothing allocated to cater for growing demand for multi facility indoor stadiums. Operating hours at the current stadium are restricted due to the close location of new residential buildings.

Did you know Norths are turning away new, and even existing teams from previous competitions because there is no capacity?

This is not just a basketball issue. It affects volleyball, Futsal, netball, badminton and other indoor sports. With council elections coming up in September we need to show them Norths Need Help Now.
