Foyer Upgrade and Access LiftPublished on 26th May 2020 in Latest News
It is with pleasure the Board advises members the Club’s application for federal and state funding through the Sport Australia’s “Move It AUS – Community Sport Infrastructure Grant Program” and the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program 2019-20 to install an ‘Access’ Lift (including an upgrade to the foyer entrance to the Club), has been successful. The outcome being the Club will receive $256,000 (ex GST) in grant funding towards the cost of the project.
The Board identified this project as a strategic priority to improve key services for people with disability, those with limited mobility, the elderly and members who use the club weekly to access facilities provided on the first floor, thus ensuring compliance with relevant disability and anti-discrimination legislation.
As mentioned above, incorporated with the lift installation will be an upgrade to the foyer to the Club (Concept Plans attached), which will significantly enhance the entrance to the club. When Building Approval has been granted and the builder determined, we will advise members further on the project commencement date which is expected to be later in the year.
