Capital Works Projects

Capital works projects are large scale improvement works that the Council carries out on its assets.

For Council to further consider your club’s request for Capital Works funding, please complete the Capital Works Application Form and return to Council before 8:00am on Monday 30 September 2019. Applications received after the closing date will not be considered by Council.

Capital Works Application Form

Council funding can assist Capital Works Projects in the following areas:

  • Sporting fields - i.e. Ground renewal;
  • Tennis facilities - i.e. Court renewal;
  • Community hall facilities - i.e. Scout Pavilions;
  • Sporting pavilions - i.e. Renovations;
  • Associated amenities - i.e. Coaches boxes, scoreboards, playing nets etc; and
  • Sporting reserve car parks - i.e. Extensions.
  • Projects submitted for funding through Council’s Capital Works Program may also be considered for Council endorsement for external funding programs, such as the Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Community Facility Funding Program.

At any one time, Council has a large number of new or upgrade projects being undertaken at sporting facilities to ensure the community is provided with the best possible assets to play sport. A list of projects that are currently underway or soon to commence can be found within the adopted 2019-20 Budget.

Electronic Scoreboards Projects

To ensure a consistent approach is taken to manage any club managed electronic scoreboard project which alters the existing state of a Council facility, Council's Electronic Scoreboard Grants program provides funds up to $40,000 for successful tenant clubs (applicants) to deliver an electronic scoreboard of their choice.

Should the value of the project exceed $40,000, the tenant clubs will need to fund any overspend. This may be combined with funding external to Council.

Knox City Council and tenant sporting clubs have invested significant financial and human resources into the development of sporting reserve facilities within Knox and it is essential that these assets are kept to the highest possible standard. In addition to this, Council needs to ensure the relevant safety standards are adhered to when clubs appoint contractors to undertake works.

Following the adoption of Council’s 2019/20 Budget, we are pleased to advise that applications are now open for Round 4 of the Electronic Scoreboards Program.

Please note that a completed application form, along with all supporting documentation, must be returned to Daniel Clark via email (Daniel.Clark@knox.vic.gov.au) no later than 8:00am on Monday 5 August 2019.

This is a competitive process and funing recipients will be based on the quality of application and information provided. Applications which do not provided all supporting documentation listed are unlikely to be funded. Applications received after the cut off time noted above will not be eligible.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Council’s Leisure Services Unit on 9298 8000.
