The mega redevelopment of the historic Concord Oval in Sydney’s inner west will push ahead in the new year after getting the final tick of approval.
The $51 million proposal will soon come to fruition and breathe new life into the stadium on Gipps St, with construction set to start on the Wests Tigers high performance centre billed as the jewel in the crown of the mammoth overhaul.
Wests’ plans include state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities, hydrotherapy pools, learning facilities and community spaces.
The club plans to use it as a base to retain elite playing talent within the area.
“The model delivers outstanding facilities, efficiencies across multiple users, a focus on sustainability, and commercial opportunities for the club which were previously out of reach,” Wests CEO Justin Pascoe said.
“Inner West Central will be a hub of activity in the region, and a destination for elite sport, pathway sport and the community alike.
“The proposed design is future proofed and will allow the club to truly establish itself as a force in the NRL and affiliate competitions, on and off the field, including enhancing our contribution to the community.”
