Skennars Head Sports Fields Expansion

Council will be starting works to expand the Skennars Head Sports Fields in May 2019.

The $2.2 million project was identified as a key priority in the Ballina Shire Open Space Strategy to help cater for our community's growing population and participation demands.

The improvement works will include:

  • new senior playing field area
  • new junior playing field area
  • sport field lighting and irrigation
  • improved drainage
  • additional parking with new site entry

 This project is possible due to $1,285,000 in Council funding and $990,000 in funding from the State Government Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Site access: Council will endeavour to keep disruptions to a minimum for field users during these works. Council is liasing directly with sporting clubs during these works. 

Anticipated timeline: May 2019 - late 2019.

Contractor: Synergy Resource Management

Investment: $2,275,000
