More ovals for the far north

johnboy 26 May 2010 5

Andrew Barr has announced more ovals and “facilities” in Gungahlin and Throsby (up near Harrison apparently) this year.

Ovals to come on line are:
— Harrison Neighbourhood Oval (NHO) and the northern end of Harrison District Playing Field (DPF) made available for sport in winter 2010
— Ngunnawal NHO made available for sport in Winter 2010
— Nicholls Synthetic due for completion in September 2010
— Phillip Oval and new pavilion due for completion in July 2010
— The southern end of the Harrison DPF will be available for sport in October 2010
— Bonner NHO will be available for sport in summer 2010/11

Interesting to see Phillip Oval shoehorned in there.

Strange, Crace developers were aparantly told they were not allowed to proceed with their planned oval recently as TAMS didn’t want the burden of watering another playing feild in the Gungahlin area.

They are currently *reviewing* the plans to make them more TAMS friendly.

The grass is finally grown enough to paint a line on it??

Nice to see that complaints from residents have worked and the newly commissioned floodlights at the first Harrison field are now pointing at the ground instead of 45 degrees up into the sky. Installers must have been morons.

Gungahlin will not be ready until at least 2015 and Throsby is only design money not building, and how is Harrison being announced twice in the same announcement?
