Bega Valley Shire Council is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI 61/19) for qualified commercial entities, incorporated community organisations and interested parties for the use and management of Bega Indoor Sports Stadium and the Old Bega Racecourse site. The aim is to increase the multi-use potential of sporting and ancillary facilities and provide community facilities that are accessible by interested community groups.
The EOI for the Old Bega Racecourse site is a new opportunity while the Bega Indoor Sports Stadium has been managed by the current licensee, Fling Physical Theatre, for several years. Fling have activated the space and met the requirements of their operating license. However, the current agreement is approaching expiry and is due for review.
Council identifies there are a number of potential uses and options for these sites.
The EOI process meets the following objectives:
Proposal and activities that demonstrate compliance with these values and objectives will be favourably considered. Interested parties are also encouraging to demonstrate how they could leverage additional investment in the facility in the future.
Please note that there is planning underway for the Bega Indoor Sports Stadium which will provide a range of updated and improved facilities and use options at the site. The concept plan is at the draft stage and is not a finalised concept. Parties interested in long term tenure as they will be in a position to contribute to the design process of the facility.
The stadium is offered with equipment for present activities and provides an excellent opportunity for a person or group interested in further developing sport within the Bega area. The conditions of management will include, but are not limited to the following:-
It is Council’s preference that occupation and management of the Bega Indoor Sports Stadium and the Old Bega Racecourse will be by the same entity, however Council will consider submissions for the occupation and management of each site individually. Council envisages offering long term tenure of ten (10) years to the successful applicant.
Proposals for longer tenure will be considered if permissible.
More informtion is available via Council's online tendering portal VendorPanel.
Submissions must be made via VendorPanel and must be received by 12.00pm on Wednesday 25 September.
