About the project
Community consultation is underway on a second batting cage to be installed for baseball at Sir David Martin Reserve.
The proposal to install a second batting cage at Sir David Martin Reserve (also known as Auluba 3) is to help meet the needs of the growing Kissing Point Baseball Club.
The proposal is on public exhibition for comment from 9 September until 7 October and residents near the reserve are being notified by letter.
According to the club, the existing batting cage at Auluba 1 and 2 is not able to cater for all players. A new batting cage at Auluba 3 would enable players of all ages to centralise training activities and to warm up before playing.
The location of the proposed second cage has been chosen to minimise impact on other park users.
Kissing Point Baseball Club has secured funding of $50,000 from the Community Building Partnership Program to contribute towards the new batting cage, if approved by the Council.
Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the proposal reflected the increase in baseball and softball’s popularity. “If successful, this will help our community to further participate in these sports and widen the Council’s commitment to outdoor recreation”.
The results of the public consultation will be reported to Council later this year.
