The Warrnambool community is invited to become involved in planning a sport and community centre for Brierly Recreation Reserve.

Warrnambool Mayor Cr Ben Blain said the community centre was identified as a need in the Brierly Reserve Master Plan and would be the next stage in the redevelopment of Brierly.

“We know Brierly Reserve is a tremendous community asset that has enormous potential to enhance liveability and wellbeing within a rapidly growing residential area,” Cr Blain said.

“Right now we’re seeing the transformation of Brierly’s sporting facilities with the redevelopment of the cricket oval into multi-sport fields of a very high standard,” Cr Blain said.

“We’ll also be doing a couple of pop-up sessions at Gateway Plaza and North Point shopping centre where you can have a face-to-face chat about what you’d like to see in the community centre.

“At the moment we have a blank canvas and we’re receptive to the ideas and suggestions around the potential functions and services that could be provided through a community hub.”
