Lansdowne Park Development

The second recommendation from the hearing was to upgrade the quantity and quality of the facilities at Lansdowne Park and to evaluate the viability of accommodating a wider range of codes. Two feasibility studies have been undertaken to evaluate the possibility for the development of Lansdowne Park.

Lansdowne A

This report looked at the feasibility of developing the area to the north of the stop bank including the inclusion of a dedicated softball facility. The report found that extending the sports fields into this area will offer increased capacity to existing users at Lansdowne Park, accommodate a new code at Lansdowne Park and mitigate the issue of the clash of codes and maintenance regimes at A & P Park. The field development of this area was prioritised for funding by Council for 2013-14.

Lansdowne B

This report and concept plan is the result of consultation with Rugby, Netball, Touch, Beach Volleyball, Softball, Cricket and Athletics. These sports codes have provided input in the development of a concept plan for the development of Lansdowne Park. This plan provides a concept which has been agreed by the sports codes and can be used for more detailed planning.
