Camden Council will spend $1 million renovating or replacing existing amenities at Chellaston Street, Upper Onslow Park and Nott Oval.

Narellan Rangers Soccer Club president Steve Holzer said he was delighted their home ground, Nott Oval, would be one of three locations to have its amenities upgraded.

"The amenities block is in a dilapidated state and is in disrepair," he said.

"The change rooms are too small with no hot shower facilities in one of the change rooms and the store- room is very small and doesn't meet the storage needs for a club of our size, and the toilet facilities [need repairs].

"We're looking forward to having new amenities and change rooms that are modern and spacious for both the home and away teams as well as enough storage space for all the club's equipment.

"We also believe by providing modern facilities, it will attract more kids from the local community to get involved with the club."

The council will spend $550,000 at Nott Oval, demolishing existing amenities and the nearby undersized store room and building a larger, single structure that will provide accessible toilets, change rooms, two shower areas and storage. Extra improvements to the grounds will also be carried out.

Councillor Therese Fedeli said: "It's great that council has managed their funds properly to help upgrade these facilities".

Elsewhere, $150,000 will be used to improve the toilets, render the external walls, tile the internal walls, extend the roof line and improve vandal-resistance to amenities at Chellaston Street.

An automated self-cleansing toilet will also be considered for the Upper Onslow Park amenities, subject to a suitable design solution.
