Portable change rooms will be installed in Gardiners Reserve (Burwood).
At the February Meeting, Council awarded the contract for the project and the installation of change rooms and associated works are expected to be finished by late July 2020.
The change rooms are to accommodate the Eastern Lions seniors promotion to the top level of National Premier League in 2020. As a result there is a minimum facility standard required for clubs playing at this level.
The southern pavilion located at Gardiners Reserve currently only has two (2) change rooms and a change room for referees. The installation of the portable change rooms will meet the Football Victoria requirement of a four-change room facility with a change room for referees.
The Eastern Lions is a well-established community-based club with approximately 20 teams across the competition in the seniors and juniors.
