The Campbelltown Sports Stadium is currently being considered as a potential site of the Campbelltown Sports and Health Centre of Excellence following the availability of a funding opportunity.
Macarthur Heights had been identified as the location of the centre since it was first considered in 2016 and jointly funded by the Australian Government, Western Sydney University and Council to the value of $23.6 million.
The project has been placed on hold while Council explores potentially relocating the centre to the stadium to attract more funding and deliver a comprehensive elite sports facility that would meet the elite training needs of the sporting community now and in the future.
Consideration will also be given to how it aligns with the Reimagining Campbelltown City Centre Master Plan (2020) and the current commitments and needs of the project partners.
The development of new sports fields at the Macarthur Heights site will continue to be delivered in accordance with a Voluntary Planning Agreement with Landcom.
It is anticipated that the outcome of the funding opportunity will be known by April and a report of all options will be presented to Council for its consideration soon after.
