Welby Hockey Fields

Construction of a second Synthetic Hockey Field will soon commence.

As shown in a 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 the NSW Department of Lands.

Thanks to fundraising and grants obtained by Southern Highlands Hockey Incorporated the upcoming 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 have notified Welby residents about the project but will be in touch with neighbouring properties prior to and during the construction works.
