Success Stories

Greater Shepparton City Council

Bulletpoint assisted the Greater Shepparton City Council to receive $7.19 million towards the Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct through the Regional Development Australia Fund Round Four.

This project will substantially expand the capacity of the 65 hectare Greater Shepparton Regional Sports Precinct (GSRSP) by building new fields and facilities for a range of sports.

It will provide modern infrastructure for the site, including a linking boulevard, fencing, landscaping, playgrounds,signage, car parks, traffic signals and supporting works.

The project will include construction of five new football fields, a new synthetic hockey pitch and athletics track, and eight new netball courts, together with upgrades to existing multipurpose fields. New lighting, pavilions and improved spectator amenities feature in most elements of the project.
