102 sports grounds and five indoor netball facilities are included in the study area. The project will consider whether existing infrastructure is meeting the needs of communities and whether there will need to be an expansion or consolidation of facilities.

Sport and Government Project Reference Groups will provide formal mechanisms for project partners to consult with key stakeholder groups. Project Reference Group members include:

Government Reference Group – Glenelg Shire Council, Moyne Shire Council, Southern Grampians Shire Council, Sport and Recreation Victoria and Project Control Group Members.

Sport Reference Group – South West Sport, AFL Netball Leagues, Cricket Associations, Netball Associations, Umpire Associations and Project Control Group Members.

For further information refer to the AFL, Cricket and Netball Strategy newsletter (link is above and to the right of this text).

What is the current status of the project?

The project commenced in June and is currently in its second stage. Stage 2 involves the background review and assessment of the facility audits that were completed in September. The information will be presented to the key stakeholder groups (Government and Sport Reference Groups) in October as part of Stage 3.

The project is due for completion in May 2018.
