Works to commence at North Deniliquin Tennis Court Site

Published on 12 November 2019

The North Deniliquin Tennis Court site will begin its process to get a new look with work due to begin this week under the Drought Communities Programme funding.

The site sits unused at present and the prominent space passed by residents and visitors is being cleared so it can be utilised more fully in the future.

The work to be completed this year will include the removal of the former court fencing and lighting, removal of existing buildings and levelling of the site. This project will provide a clear, open space suitable for future works that will enhance the entrance into town.

A separate project is underway focused on community consultation and development of a concept plan that will outline how this site will be developed in the future.

A draft version of the plan will be considered at Council’s November Meeting being held on 21 November.

Edward River Council Mayor Norm Brennan said that beginning works at the North Deniliquin Tennis Court site signalled an exciting starting point to boost the North Deniliquin area. 

“This project will lead to the employment of local contractors as well as being a key step in the overall process to rehabilitate and develop this site under a future project,” Cr Brennan said.

Works will begin this week and will continue for two to three weeks.

The contractors appointed to clear the site are Murray Constructions of Deniliquin.
