West Wimmera Shire Council will apply for $1 million in funding to upgrade the Edenhope Recreation Reserve football changerooms.

At a meeting on Wednesday, Council agreed to apply for funding from the State government’s Regional Community Sport Infrastructure Fund.

The project is projected to cost about $1.6 million and will include the construction of new changing facilities at the recreation reserve.

The current changerooms are some of the oldest facilities in the shire and do not meet current AFL standards.

This redevelopment aims to provide compliant football change facilities, which will include:

  • two changerooms (home and away) each equipped three toilets and four shower cubicles
  • Umpire changerooms
  • Fully accessible first-aid room
  • Public toilets

This facility would be constructed in a new location in between the netball courts and the football oval.

Council Chief Executive Officer David Bezuidenhout said Council was committed to enhancing community infrastructure and supporting local sports clubs.

“This upgrade is long overdue, and we're hopeful that we can secure the funding needed to make it a reality,” he said.

“We believe the facility will not only benefit the Edenhope-Apsley Football and Netball Club but also serves as a hub for community events and activities.

“If we receive this funding, we're confident that we can deliver a project that the whole community can be proud of."

The project would complement the work that Council has completed over the past few years at Apsley, Harrow, Kaniva and Goroke recreational facilities.
