Shoalhaven Hockey in conjunction with Shoalhaven City Council has built a water based synthetic hockey pitch at Bernie Regan Sporting Complex at North Nowra.
A Development Application for 2 water based synthetic surfaces and a clubhouse located to the south of the existing amenities building where the current carpark exists was approved by Council (on 22nd July 2008). This DA drew objections from a small number of residents in West Cambewarra Rd. A siteplan for the development is available for viewing here.
Pre-construction approvals from NSW Govt agencies were secured by Council in December 2009. This process took more time than expected. With these approvals to hand and the design finalised, tenders were called by Shoalhaven Council and construction commenced after Easter 2010.
Funding for Stage 1 of this project (single turf), a $2.4m project has come from five sources - Developers having contributed towards a S94 Plan ($1,419,000), the Federal Government ($700,000) Shoalhaven City Council ($168,000), NSW Government $75,000 and funds accumulated by Shoalhaven Hockey ($126,000).
Construction was delayed because of technical issues relating to high rainfall during the construction at critical stages. Construction was completed with the laying of the playing surface which commenced on 18th March. The field was completed for play in late April 2011. An official opening was held on Friday May 27th with many past & current players participating in a celebrity match with Council officials and construction workers.
The introduction of a synthetic surface adjacent to the couch grass surfaces will allow Shoalhaven to host championships higher than regional level events which have been run in the past.
raised in the Association canteen will assist in this venture, as well as
profits from carnivals and championships hosted by Shoalhaven Hockey.
