The DOOLEYS team

The forthcoming Club transformation project will deliver a vibrant new destination for Members and the wider community which will become an integral part of a revitalised Lidcombe Town Centre, but it is just the beginning of grander plans to transform the entire DOOLEYS landholding into the heart of the Lidcombe Town Centre.

The DOOLEYS team have crafted a vision for the area, based on extensive consultation with key stakeholders and a responsible attitude to sustainable development which enhances not pressurises local infrastructure.

Our masterplan will be broken into numerous stages to allow delivery of the long-term vision in a responsible and manageable way.
