Hyland Road in Greystanes

Cumberland Council has secured $53.7 million in funding under the New South Wales Government’s WestInvest Community Project Grants, to build a state-of-the-art sporting facility in Greystanes.

These funds will be used to transform unused land on Hyland Road in Greystanes into a much-needed sporting facility. 

The facility will include sporting fields, cricket practice nets and an indoor sporting hall with courts that will cater to a range of sports, including cricket, rugby league, rugby union, AFL, netball, basketball, and volleyball. 

Cumberland Council is one of 15 Local Government Areas in Western Sydney that was eligible for funding under the WestInvest Community Projects – competitive round grants.

Cumberland Council Mayor, Lisa Lake, said that the facility will not only accommodate local sporting clubs but also attract new visitors to the area. 

“This is the first of its kind indoor and outdoor sporting facility to be built in Greystanes and it will create a much-needed place for our growing population to play and enjoy a wide variety of sports,” Mayor Lake said. 

Council will continue to consult with the community as the planning for this infrastructure project progresses.

This announcement is in addition to over $29 million previously secured by Council under WestInvest for local government projects in Pendle Hill, Guildford and Lidcombe.

The remaining WestInvest funding for New South Wales Government agencies has yet to be allocated, and Council said it looks forward to learning what this next round may deliver for the people of Cumberland.
