In another exciting milestone for the Alkimos aquatic and recreation centre, Wanneroo Council approved the business plan for the facility at its May meeting.

Endorsed by the Alkimos Aquatic and Recreation Centre Working Group, the plan provides an assessment of the proposed development and operation of the facility, including detailed financial modelling and a projected timeline.

Wanneroo Mayor Linda Aitken said she was pleased to share this milestone with the community.

“We’ve been working closely with our northern corridor community throughout every stage of this project, and we know just how passionate they are about this facility,” she said.

“Alkimos is expected to be one of Perth’s fastest growing suburbs over the next 20 years and the delivery of the Alkimos aquatic and recreation centre will have a strong positive impact on the City’s future planning for the region.

“We are grateful to have received funding commitments of $30 million from the Australian Government, including $25 million under the Priority Community Infrastructure Program and $5 million under the Female Facilities and Water Safety Stream, $12.6 million from the State Government, including $10 million under the WA Recovery Plan, $2.5 million from the Community Sports & Recreation Facilities Fund and $147,592 through the Changing Places program, and $14.2 million through the Alkimos-Eglinton Developer Contribution Plan.

“It is fantastic to be entering the next phase of this project and I am looking forward to the completion of the detailed design later this year.”
