Open house at new sports and cultural centre

THE $16.8m Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex now nearing completion in Ewingsdale Road, Byron Bay, will be thrown open for inspection on Sunday.
Byron Council’s executive manager of community infrastructure, Phil Holloway, said the complex was “well and truly starting to take shape” and construction of the multi-purpose facility was well under way.
When completed, the indoor facility will be able to accommodate a host of sports including netball, basketball, badminton, volleyball and futsal.
Mayor Cr Jan Barham said the open afternoon at the new sport and cultural complex was a great opportunity to walk around the construction site and talk to staff, councillors and community representatives about the project’s development.
“The Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex has evolved in the past month with the construction of the multi-purpose facility progressing well,” Cr Barham said.
“The concrete walls have gone up and the structural steel framework for the roof is currently being erected and the scale of the structure is defined.
“The cricket pitches are under construction and the outdoor netball courts will soon have their final acrylic seal before line marking.
“It’s an exciting time seeing the project take shape. With the support of the community, the recent tree-planting days have gone well and provided future shade and softening of the site.”
Visitors are being asked to wear enclosed shoes.
