TWO sporting pavilions in the Kalamunda foothills are one step closer to a revamp following the last City of Kalamunda ordinary council meeting for the year.

The design for the Norm Sadler pavilion in Maida Vale and the design for a revamped Scott Reserve pavilion in High Wycombe were both carried unanimously by councillors at the December 12 ordinary council meeting.

The next stage will see council put out tenders for the projects and seek final designs for the pavilions.

The City of Kalamunda officer report states that the Norm Sadler pavilion is set to cost $3,678,242 while the Scott Reserve pavilion will cost $5,529,576.

The city is seeking $1.3 million in funding from the Department of Local Government, Sports, and Cultural Industries (DLGSCI) for the Scott Reserve project, while a $2.4m grant from DLGSCI has already been secured for the Norm Sadler pavilion.

A further $50,000 grant for the Scott Reserve pavilion has also come from the Western Australian Football Commission.

The plans for the refurbished Norm Sadler pavilion will include three new changerooms as well as refurbishing four changerooms and the existing kitchen.

There are also plans to include new toilets, an umpires changeroom and a first aid room.

The revamping of the Scott Reserve pavilion is part of the grander Scott Reserve master plan, which will see new pathways added around the footy and cricket ovals as well as the inclusion of new seating and a scoreboard on the Wycombe Road side of the footy oval.

Under the plans, the old Scott Reserve pavilion will be demolished to make way for a new one with six changerooms, an updated kitchen alongside an umpire changeroom and first aid room.

Construction for the Norm Sadler pavilion is expected to take 12 months from the award of contract, while construction for the Scott Reserve pavilion is expected to take 18 months from the award of contact.
