Consultation has concluded

BACKGROUND

Townsville City Council is improving the existing stormwater drainage between Horseshoe Bay Park and the intersection of Horseshoe Bay Road and Apjohn Street.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Apjohn Street Drainage Improvements work is being undertaken in stages and requires the need to relocate the existing Horseshoe Bay Park multipurpose sport court.

As part of this project, Council plans to:

  • remove the existing tennis and basketball court
  • construct a new hard surface multipurpose sport court
  • reinstate fencing and lighting at the new location.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

Council values community feedback on all of our projects and invites residents and surrounding visitors of the park to participate in choosing a third sport activity to include in the new multipurpose sport court.

The new multipurpose sport court will accommodate both tennis and basketball, and can include one additional sport, due to the size of the court and line marking requirements. Residents are invited to provide feedback on their preferred option for the third sport, choosing between either:

  • Option A. Netball (with a reversible basketball/netball)
  • Option B. Futsal (soccer played on a hard surface).

This feedback form will be open for public consultation until 5pm Thursday 15 April, 2020.
