Hastings Regional Sporting Complex

Sporting fields

Providing quality facilities for a range of sports is a high priority for Council, and new sports fields planned for Wauchope will be a valuable addition in catering for future sporting growth across our region.

The proposed new facilities will be located on the corner of Stoney Creek Rd and the Oxley Highway, and consist of high-end fields and related infrastructure designed for outdoor sports including cricket, touch football, football, rugby league and rugby union.

The site at Wauchope was seen as ideal in catering for the Wauchope community and also providing ease of access from the Pacific Highway, Port Macquarie and our broader region.

The new sporting complex will include:

  • Touch football fields
  • Cricket fields – with both turf and synthetic pitches
  • Football/rugby league/rugby union fields
  • Field lighting
  • A large club room including a grandstand and accommodating change rooms, a meeting room, accessible amenities, canteen, kitchen and storerooms
  • Multiple car park areas catering for up to 500 vehicles
  • Bus access and pick-up/drop-off zones
  • A fenced off-leash dog park
  • A children's playground

    As you may know, Council has recently completed the community engagement associated with the concept plan for the Hastings Sporting Fields proposed at the corner of Oxley Highway and Stoney Creek Road.

    Council received over 77 pieces of feedback in addition to a petition signed by 43 persons in relation to the proposal, during the consultation period from 20th February to 21st March 2018.

    In general, there was a good level of support for the project with 30% of submissions received specifically providing positive feedback in addition to constructive feedback on the concept plans.

    Council has developed a Community Engagement Report to provide additional information on the project to address the issues raised during the engagement period and outline changes made as a result of the engagement.
