Abernethy Sporting Precinct
We are looking at the future of the Abernethy Sporting Precinct to ensure it meets the needs of our clubs and wider community.
We will be undertaking site surveys and building audits at 400 Abernethy Road in February 2023.
This information will be used to update internal records and inform future planning.
We have engaged a consultant to help us understand the future needs of this very important site. This will be a collaborative process with existing clubs onsite as well as the wider community. This will include consultation with clubs and community this financial year.
We hope to share more information with you in the coming months. Regular updates will be available on Belmont Connect.
Future Planning Phases

Community Recreational Needs
As a result of projected population growth, current leisure facility provision, aging assets and to improve the health and wellbeing of residents within the City of Belmont, a preliminary investigation was undertaken into the City’s sporting and recreational needs.
From this investigation we identified an opportunity for redevelopment and possible expansion of a multi-use sporting and recreational hub. 400 Abernethy Road was identified as a suitable location for further exploration.
The Abernethy Sporting Precinct will be explored together with local club members, residents and community group representatives through shared values and priorities.
