Wagga Wagga PCYC 

Update at July 2019

Congratulations to PCYC following securing the balance of the funding from the Federal Government in order to proceed with the construction of the new court multi-purpose stadium, after school care, conference and office centre at Bolton Park. In April 2019, the Federal Government provided $10m from the Community Development Grants program to compliment $10m contributed by the NSW State Government and $3m from the Wagga Wagga City Council.

It is expected that construction will commence in quarter 3 2019 and will take approximately 18 months to complete.

Hopefully securing this development will add further impetus to gaining government support and funding for Wagga Wagga City Council’s proposed $65m Bolton Park Redevelopment project adjoining the PCYC development.

Background

The current Wagga Wagga PCYC in Gurwood Street is aged, in a poor location and constrained by inadequate space and facilities. As a result, the PCYC are unable to provide the full suite of services required to meet the level of demand and population density in Wagga Wagga and the broader region. 

The PCYC propose to develop a new, purpose built facility in central Wagga Wagga to service a regional population and deliver socially beneficial outcomes in the short and long term. The project has development approval and is currently seeking financial support from all levels of Government. 


Key Stakeholders: 

PCYC NSW 

Wagga Wagga City Council 

NSW Government 

Committee 4 Wagga 

Recommendation: 

Encourage all levels of Government to consider financial support for the development of a PCYC facility in central Wagga Wagga.
