THE City of Wanneroo Council has voted to support Speedway Motorcycle Club’s application for state government community sporting and recreational facilities fund grant money.

A city spokeswoman said the speedway club had requested the funding to install first aid and toilet facilities on its site in Neerabup.

She said the planned additions to the site, along with the recently completed safety upgrades to track fencing, would mean the club was eligible for track licensing with Motorcycling WA.

“The total project works are to include water bore and tanks, a toilet and first aid block, and electrical services,’’ she said.

The project is expected to cost $126,742, including the community sporting and recreational facilities fund grant of almost $42,000.

She said the remaining funds would come from the club, volunteer labour and donated materials.

The city does not anticipate funding any of the improvements.

One of the requirements of community sporting and recreational facilities fund funding is that applicants must match the money with their own contributions, whether that is cash, donated materials or volunteer labour.
