You are invited you to share your views on potential changes to plans for the development of the Southern Sports Facility at Majors Road.

Council received a report on April 23 this year which confirmed it was unlikely the delivery of the soccer complex could be achieved within the existing $5 million budget.

Council is now undertaking a feasibility study into locating extra soccer pitches at the Cove Sports and Community Club.

As part of the study, Council will also investigate relocating the Cove Football Club (AFL) and the Cove Cricket Club to Capella Reserve with a clubhouse and parking.

Council made the decision on the Southern Sports Facility, earmarked for Majors Road, at its meeting of April 23. The Council meeting minutes are available on the City of Marion website.

Sports clubs and the community will be fully consulted before any decision is made.

Formal consultation will be undertaken in the near future. To find out more and provide feedback visit www.makingmarion.com.au.
