A shared playing field is being constructed at the public open space which is bounded by Novelli Parade, Terracina Parkway, Barcelona Road and the future primary school in Piara Waters.
Preliminary earthworks have already been completed and Stage 1 will include the playing field and car parking. Construction is currently scheduled to commence in October 2018 and completed by March 2019.
The project is being funded by Developer Contribution Plan No.3 with a contribution from the Department of Education expected once the adjoining school is constructed.
Future stages of the project will include a sports pavilion and community facility.
The development is yet to be named but at a recent council meeting, it was recommended that the site is named ‘Novelli Reserve’.
The playing field will provide an important and much needed area of open space for residents of Piara Waters and Harrisdale, and will more broadly support sporting and community uses.
