Reconstruct a new clubhouse and amenities building above the flood level.
Reason for works
The existing clubhouse and amenities building were built in 1962 on reclaimed land, approximately 1.5m above sea level. The Oval is located on an overland stormwater flow path and in significant weather events can be subjected to a combination of tidal inundation & escaping stormwater. The replacement facilities will be constructed on a platform above the flood level to protect the buildings.
Scope of works
The project works include:
- Demolition of the existing facilities
- Construct new clubhouse building No1
- accommodating meeting room

Public impacts during construction
Whilst we undertake this upgrade to the community facilities there will be some impact on our neighbours and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
- Access to Playing Fields during the construction works is still available.
- Alternative, temporary public toilet facilities will be in place during construction.
- Please be aware that car parking space near the construction worksite will be limited.
- Some equipment/ supplies may need to be delivered to the waterworks at night. This will be kept to a minimum.
- There may be minor utility service disruption to the Rowing Club from time to time. Any disruption in service will be directly co-ordinated by the Contractor, with the club.
These works may create additional noise in the area and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
This project is jointly funded by project partners; Sutherland Shire Council, NSW Office of Sport, National Rugby League and the Como Jannali Junior Ruby League Football Club.
