2015/2016 Council Budget

Mt Alexander Shire has allocated $170,000 for the design of netball courts and $120,000 for an irrigation upgrade at Wesley Hill Sports Complex.

Council gives Wesley Hill Sports Complex project green light and Mt ACE funds for Wesley Hill reach $90,000.

Mt Alexander Community Enterprise Inc has $80,000 set aside to support the Mt Alexander Shire Council’s planned redevelopment works at Wesley Hill Sports Complex. This figure was reached in 2015. Council projects seeking state and federal government grants also seek a community contribution and Mt ACE funds will be available to assist with this.

At their meeting in June 2014, Mt Alexander Shire Councillors agreed to proceed with a three-stage redevelopment of the Junior Sports Complex at Wesley Hill. The proposed cost would be $5.8 million for all three stages.

Stage One was estimated to cost $1.7 million and would include compliant netball courts, a netball pavilion with covered area, ground works, court lighting, ramps, steps and roadway.
Stage Two is estimated to cost $2.3 million and include a multi-use pavilion, roadway and drop-off, ramps, steps and external works.
Stage Three is estimated to cost $1.8 million and include a cricket pavilion, car park and roadways, playground, barbecue, walking/running tracks and landscaping


$90,000 reached 2016

The Wesley Hill Sports Complex is the home to hundreds of users every week – football, basketball, netball, cricket, cycling, badminton, billiards, remote control cars, little athletics. These clubs recognise the need to upgrade the ageing facilities and the Wesley Hill Sports Complex Redevelopment group are aiming to make it happen.

Mt Alexander Community Enterprise is financially supporting this group in their efforts and have already reached $90,000.

Discussions with Mt Alexander Shire to develop a site Master Plan are progressing and the user groups were ECSTATIC when in July 2014 the Council reached an agreement to proceed.

Immediate needs are the relocation of the netball courts and a pavilion with changerooms and all facilities.

Cricket nets and facilities, public toilets, basketball court upgrade, walking tracks, BBQ and playground, parking, remote control car driver stand, are all on the agenda.

In the longer term other requirements are a new standard size velodrome and even a second football oval once the local junior football program moves to Wesley Hill.

Mt Alexander Shire will be seeking government grants and community funds to assist with these redevelopment stages and Mt ACE will be able to provide financial support for the user groups.
