We’re in the early stages of a major project to develop a regional sports precinct in Charlton.
The Toowoomba Region Sports Precinct (TRSP) will be located on a site in Charlton next to the Toowoomba Bypass and fronting the Toowoomba Connection Road.
The facility will meet the growing demand for sport and recreation facilities and help attract state and national sporting events to our Region. It will provide a mix of high-quality fields and amenities for a variety of outdoor sporting activities and a district-level recreation park. The design also includes opportunities for the inclusion of future indoor and outdoor courts as well as an athletics facility, however, these elements are beyond stage eight and not currently funded.
The project is being progressed according to the Toowoomba Region Sports Precinct Master Plan and will be developed over several years.
The master plan currently consists of seven stages and is expected to cost $197 million.
Council has endorsed the business case and master plan for the TRSP, paving the way for the project to proceed to the detailed design stage. The project is now seeking development approval through a Local Government Infrastructure Designation to enable future development at the site.
Funding for early works at the site has been approved which may include construction of an access road and provision for connection to utilities such as water.
Stage one will involve the construction of rectangular fields, a supporting clubhouse with car parking and an access road.
The master plan is provided below (click to enlarge). It is important to note that as this exciting new precinct takes shape, the master plan is designed to illustrate the indicative layout of the precinct at this point in time. Following further investigations and detailed design development, the precinct layout, specific infrastructure and access roads may be modified to accommodate changing design standards, site constraints or demand requirements.
