Howrah indoor bowls facility set for construction

Clarence City Council has awarded a tender of $1.186m for the construction of Stage 1 of an indoor bowls facility at the Howrah Bowls Club.

The contract for Stage 1 of the project involves the construction of a large 50m by 42m building with basic fit-out. Further works are to be undertaken by the Howrah Bowls Club to complete the installation of the timber floor and the bowls carpet. These items will bring the overall costing for the project to around $1.521m.

The indoor bowls facility has been secured with financial commitments of $510,000 by the Howrah Bowling Club and an $80,000 grant from the Department of Premier and Cabinet Sport and Recreation Division.

The project is part of Council’s strategy to support local communities to build on existing capacity and progress health and wellbeing. The project will deliver a sport and recreation facility with the capacity for year round all-weather bowls activity for people of all ages and levels of physical ability; enhancing health and wellbeing fitness and reducing social isolation. 

Consultation on the indoor bowls facility follows a number of other Council community sporting and recreational infrastructure projects, including works at Wentworth Park sports complex, a skate park at Kangaroo Bay, and a stage, amphitheatre and public amenities at Simmons Park in Lindisfarne.

Construction is expected to commence in December.
