The project was officially given the green light by the local authority on December 14.

Spectator seating is also indicated on the ground floor at one side of the sports hall to cater for approximately 100 people.

The new development will be constructed at the back of Grennan College on lands currently used for playing pitches. The site is located on lands zoned community/education in the Thomastown Local Area Plan 2009. Access to the site is via the existing access serving the school at Ladyswell Street.
