Frankston City Council recently met with representatives from Frankston Tennis Club, Frankston East Tennis Club, Bayside Gymnastics Club and Tennis Victoria to discuss options moving forward for the relocation of Frankston Tennis Club.
Frankston City Mayor Michael O’Reilly highlighted discussions had focussed on options moving forward for all clubs, with the desire to remain on-course for a future regional multi-sport facility.
“With works set to commence within the coming 12 months on the Frankston Hospital expansion, a decision needs to be made in consultation with stakeholders as to what our next steps are for the relocation of Frankston Tennis Club members.”
“Council stands alongside stakeholders in expressing our deep disappointment that state and federal politicians did not financially support this vital regional project,” said the Mayor.
“It was decided at this meeting that officers will finalise concept design work on interim refurbishment options at the Frankston East Tennis Club site to house both clubs, whilst further detailed work on Council’s forthcoming Tennis Strategy is completed.”
Council will reconvene with Centenary Park stakeholders in the coming weeks to review interim plans and options moving forward, which will be presented to Councillors at a future Ordinary Meeting.
“Council will continue advocating to the Victorian Government and Federal Government to ensure this and other vital projects proceed in order to strengthen Frankston City’s status as the Lifestyle Capital of Victoria,” said the Mayor.
