Narangba residents can look forward to the construction of a new $3 million tennis hub to be built at the Harris Avenue Sports Complex.
Moreton Bay Region Mayor Peter Flannery said the joint funding investment with the State Government would deliver six new courts, a new clubhouse and pro shop, carparking, lighting and infrastructure.
“BBN Constructions aced the tender process and will get work underway next month on the new $3 million tennis hub," he said.
"This is especially thanks to the Queensland Government's $2 million contribution through its Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package for Moreton Bay Region.
“We all know the value of sports infrastructure after going through lockdown, so this will be a great boon for the Narangba region, which is an emerging community.
“Moreton Bay Region has the best sports infrastructure in all of southeast Queensland and we want to make sure we’re continuing to upgrade our facilities with population growth.
“That’s why Council has increased its investment into sports infrastructure by more than 40% in this year’s 2020-21 Budget, up from $34 million last financial year to $49 million.
“It’s not only a great way for us all to stay fit and healthy but to keep mentally fresh as we all deal with these tough times.”
This Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package project is a joint initiative of Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
Construction is due to begin in November and be completed by July 2021, weather permitting.
