Cessnock City Council has prepared the Booth Park Netball Facility Draft Concept Plan and is calling on the community to have its say.

On 19 May 2021, Council resolved that Booth Park be identified as an alternate site for the relocation of the Kurri Kurri netball courts (currently located at 101 Maitland Street, Kurri Kurri).

To support the above resolution, Council was successful in obtaining funding under the NSW Government’s Resources for Regions program to undertake a business case, concept plan, and detailed designs to development application standard for the new facility.

Key elements of the concept plan include:

  • 12 netball courts
  • an amenity building containing a kiosk, BBQ area, storage, office, meeting room, first aid room, and separate male and female accessible toilets
  • formalised car parking for 120 cars (in addition to parallel road side parking)
  • dedicated space for temporary marquees to support netball carnivals and events
  • a multipurpose half-court

Cessnock City Council Mayor Jay Suvaal said this new facility would be fantastic for the local netball community and is encouraging residents to view the draft plan and let Council know what you think.

“Council plans to engage with key stakeholders during the consultation period, including the Kurri Kurri Netball Association, impacted residents and the broader community,” Cr Suvaal said.

“It’s so important that residents provide feedback on Council’s plans, as it ensures we get them right before we take the next steps.”

The Booth Park Netball Facility Draft Concept Plan will be on public exhibition from Wednesday 25 May to Tuesday 21 June 2022. To view the plans and have your say, visit Cessnock and Kurri Kurri Libraries, or Council’s website.
