Council endorses Calliope multi-use sports park plan

GLADSTONE Regional Council has endorsed a concept plan for the development of Pound Paddock at Lot 70 Racecourse Road, Calliope, into a multi-use sports park.

The venue will serve as a new home for the alternate season codes of cricket and football (soccer) with the creation of one premier football field and a second field that combines with a cricket oval.

The council's parks and recreation portfolio spokesperson councillor Graham McDonald said this preferred option was sought through consultation with key sports organisations and stakeholders

"This plan provides far better facilities than other alternatives on offer and allows for future growth in both sports while retaining shared areas, thus encouraging a multi-use concept," Cr McDonald said.

The plan was approved at council's general meeting on Tuesday.
