Gipps and Hyland roads parklands will be transformed into a $22 million premier sporting facility for western Sydney, Holroyd Council says.
Former Holroyd mayor Ross Grove said the approval of the draft plan of management earlier this month had paved the way for development on the former dump site.
Alongside sports fields and courts, the plans propose a multi-purpose indoor centre, grandstands for spectators, and better accessibility to the facility and its amenities.
Funding for some of the projects has been allocated in the council's developer contribution fund.
"We are taking an overgrown former rubbish tip site and converting it to one of the greatest sporting precincts in our western Sydney region," Cr Grove said.
"This precinct will host sporting activity (for) the best athletes and teams in our region, starting with the professional grade AFL field installed in partnership with the GWS Giants, and opening the door to exciting new investments and ventures with prominent sports clubs.
"We want to make sure that the parklands will grow in a way that supports the success of our regional athletes and teams that compete on a national and international level, and offers the levels of quality facilities that attract people to Holroyd City.
"We want to be able to meet today's standards, go beyond the sports already on offer, and nurture our athletes to better opportunities and bigger possibilities in the future."
