An updated concept plan for the Pambula Sporting Complex pavilion has been given the nod by Bega Valley Shire Councillors last week.

An initial design was created by local designer Richie McNeil and has been refined over the past two months with unanimous approval given by councillors to go ahead with a finalised design.

The new structure is planned to replace the existing pavilion building as well as the Frank Maher Pavilion on the Sporting Complex grounds and is being budgeted to cost $3.3million.

Council staff recommended approval of the design, noting the need for mixed gender use as a priority.

"[Both buildings] have issues with adequate facility provision particularly in regard to mixed gender use and accessibility and are generally below an acceptable standard." their report reads.

Councillor Mitchell Nadin spoke highly of the design and efforts from the Project Control Group, which staff noted had given broad support for the design.

"There has been a long time to be able to think about this and talk to the community to get their input," Cr Nadin said.

"It has been really good process, the PCG has been excellent and I think this is one of those times where it really has worked.

"I do think this is a very user friendly design and comprehensive as well. It ticks all the boxes and considering the dilapidated state of a lot of assets on this field at the moment this is going to be an insanely awesome transition."
