THE Brisbane City Council has approved a redevelopment application for Ballymore Stadium in Herston, which could be worth up to $100 million.

Queensland Rugby CEO Jim Carmichael has welcomed the council’s move but says key decisions still need to be made before the first sod can be turned on redevelopment.

“The economic climate has changed substantially since we first lodged our application in September 2008, so only now that we have approval can we finally undertake the next level of evaluation and planning,” he says.

“Our paramount objective is to conserve Ballymore as the heart of both elite and community rugby in Queensland, whilst continuing to be a valuable community and sporting precinct.”

“We have told our key stakeholders that we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to resolve Ballymore’s future and we are determined that the final plan must be the best possible outcome for the entirety of rugby’s stakeholders in Queensland.”

A Queensland Rugby spokesperson says it will be at least several months before the redevelopment is put to tender.
