Mudgee’s Glen Willow Sporting Complex is set for major changes after the Mid-Western Regional Council voted in favour of an updated Master Plan at a council meeting earlier this month.
The master plan outlines the delivery of additional facilities for netball, hockey, rugby league, rugby union, cricket, soccer and touch football at the complex, to help attract high profile teams to the region and increase local participation in sport.
Following feedback from sporting committees minor amendments have been made to the master plan. Changes include the replacement of the northern most cricket and AFL oval, with two multi-purpose fields; more carparking areas; more shedding locations; a location for cricket nets; alteration to the walking track/cycleway path; and potential future vehicle access to the complex from Cox Street.
The delivery of the Glen Willow master plan will take place over stages. The first stage is already complete, but the development of future stages may depend on external funding from sporting organisations.
According to the draft plan, of primary importance is the development of more playing fields and additional regional level fields complete with grandstand, amenities, media and other facilities in order to attract the level of competition necessary to attract other regional teams.
