Shoalhaven Coucil Backs Yerriyong Motorsports Facility

Shoalhaven City Council has endorsed the proposed Yerriyong Motorsports facility, moving the development planned for the NSW south coast another step closer to becoming a reality.

Council will now recommend to the Southern Joint Regional Planning Panel this week that the application be given “deferred commencement consent”, meaning more information needs to be supplied before a final consent will be given.

Shoalhaven Coucil Backs Yerriyong Motorsports FacilityThe $19 million development will involve the upgrade and extension of the existing Nowra District Motorcycle Club and the construction of a new sealed road racing track with administration buildings and parking.

The Federal Government pledged $9.532m towards construction of the venue under the National Stronger Regions Funding initiative last December.

The proposed facility would be run by Motorcycling NSW and would cater for car and kart racing as well as motorcycle sports.

It will also be able to facilitate other community activities including cycling, fun runs, rider and driver training, corporate events, school-based activities and television and film production.

Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash said “The motorsports facility will provide the area with a state of the art motorsport hub with the ability to host racing at a national standard, providing a range of flow on benefits to the entire Shoalhaven”.

A survey has shown outstanding community support for the development, with over 90% of respondents in favour of the complex.
