Cora Lynn Recreation Reserve Pavilion | Cora Lynn
The Cora Lynn Recreation Reserve pavilion change room upgrades are scheduled in Council’s budget endorsed on 26 June in years 2 and 3 (2024-2026). The modular construction is to be managed by Council with additional funding in the endorsed budget to cover these costs.
Cora Lynn Reserve is currently used by the Cora Lynn Football Club, Cora Lynn Netball Club and Cora Lynn Show Jumping Club.
There are 3 separate buildings at Cora Lynn Reserve which provide the function of social rooms, change rooms for users of the oval and canteen facilities. The need to upgrade the existing change rooms was identified in 2017 and funding for design allocated to Council’s capital works program. Initial discussion with the Reserve Committee and user groups commenced in early 2018.
In late 2018, Council was successful in receiving a community sport infrastructure loan of $4,226,000 for the new pavilion project which would see the removal of all three buildings into one new development.
New change rooms are to be built at Cora Lynn Reserve.
The project is being funded by Council and the Victorian Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Loan Scheme.
Unfortunately, Council’s application for funding under the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund was unsuccessful.
Council officers received support from the Committee of Management for a modular construction to reduce project costs.
