INVEST TO MODERNISE SPORT AND EVENT ACCESSIBILITY IN QUEENSLAND’S SPORTING HEARTLAND
A national-standard sport and entertainment precinct anchored around a boutique rectangular stadium will revolutionise access to sporting and entertainment content in Queensland’s sporting heartland. The North Ipswich Sport and Entertainment Precinct will be an economic and lifestyle asset for Ipswich’s future half a million residents and address an acute social infrastructure shortfall. This project will increase Ipswich’s ability to host 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games events and training.
$2.5 million is required to progress the North Ipswich Sport and Entertainment Precinct to shovel-ready status by further developing the preferred options in a Detailed Business Case.
Council believes a staged approach may deliver community outcomes in the short term.
