Oval Redevelopment Proposal

Willoughby Council has initiated the refurbishment of CHS oval and adjacent sports facilities. This project involves the resurfacing of the oval with synthetic grass and the installation of an hydraulic cricket pitch. The surrounding space of the oval will be developed to accommodate 3 basketball/ netball courts, 2 volleyball/ handball courts changing rooms and cricket nets.

This project will be funded by Willoughby Council, the DEC, and CHS. 


Update as of March 2015: Due to a significant increase in costs this project has been put on hold.

Update as of June 2016: The State Government will fund the remediation of the oval so council will go ahead with the upgrade, the plan includes

  • oval resurface to an all-weather material with markings for soccer and cricket
  • three basketball courts with markings for handball
  • carpark re-surface
  • flood lights
