Letter issued to Welby residents about project

almost 1 year ago

Property owners and occupiers in Welby have been notified via letter about commencement of work on a second synthetic hockey field. The letter provides a brief overview of the project and included a 'Frequently Asked Questions' sheet.

Construction of a second Synthetic Hockey Field will soon commence at the Welby Hockey Fields.

As shown in the enclosed design for Welby Heights Oval prepared in 2004, the new hockey field will be located alongside Currockbilly Street, Welby. The works are to be completed as part of the agreed actions listed in the associated Plan of Management prepared by Wingecarribee Shire Council and NSW Department of Lands.

Thanks to fundraising and grants obtained by the Southern Highlands Hockey Incorporated these works are expected to include:

  • Synthetic Grass Hockey pitch,
  • Access road (emergency and maintenance only),
  • Internal Footpaths,
  • Spectator mounds,
  • Fencing,
  • Stormwater drainage works, and
  • Lighting.
There will be some traffic and noise impacts on nearby residents during construction but we are working with contractors to minimise this. We will be in touch with neighbouring properties when an exact date has been confirmed for the commencement of works.
