the proposed Bundaberg Regional Aquatic Centre, which aims to deliver an advanced heated pool to promote sports, health and entertainment.
Council has identified the Multiplex precinct as the preferred website for a FINA-standard complex with a retractable roofing, coffee shop and grassed viewer area. Mayor Jack Dempsey said the task will provide one of the most significant sports and entertainment centers in the modern-day history of Bundaberg. “It will supply year-round fitness, health and leisure activities, and has the capability to attract local and state events,” he stated.
“We’ve listened to the neighborhood and desire to make sure a smooth transition from the historical Anzac Park Pool to a brand-new and enhanced marine centre.
“The riverside precinct will be opened as much as produce a lively community space which links to the CBD.”
Principle plans have also been released for the $19 million redevelopment of Anzac Park. The task will develop new leisure areas, a versatile outside event area and a memorial avenue commemorating the region’s service workers.
A Council truth sheet says the new 50-metre, heated competitors pool at the Multiplex will support local and state level events and training school.
“Subsequent phases of the job will consist of additional indoor pools along with physical fitness, teaching and treatment spaces, developing a center able to offer comprehensive fitness and health services,” the reality sheet states.
“Co-locating the Bundaberg Regional Aquatic Center with the Bundaberg Multiplex, that includes a large modern-day conference centre and the Bundaberg PCYC, will leverage previous investment and create a defined, branded high performance-based precinct.”
Stage one of the local aquatic centre is approximated to cost $23.8 million and contribute $22.5 million to gross regional product, including $7.8 million straight.
Economic modelling suggests 126 full-time jobs during building and 13 directly when running.
