New purpose-built space for Dog Training and Brighton Show
by Brighton Council
The Brighton Council together with the Brighton Agricultural Society, Tassie Flying Paws Dog Club, the Brighton Kennel Club and TasDogs were successful in receiving grant funding for a new fit-for-purpose building at the Pontville Show Grounds.
The building provides over 800m² of undercover space for the Brighton Show and an ongoing space for dog training, competition and showing. The building is multi-use and can be utilised for agricultural education and training or other displays and gatherings.
Works have progressed well this year with a large concrete slab and services currently under way. The building is expected to be erected by the end of October ready for the Brighton Show on the 12 November, 2023. The final fit-out and a small office will also be constructed in the coming months. The building will be used largely in conjunction with the Pontville Sports Grounds and will have direct access to the grass outdoor dog enclosure. Council will continue to work closely with the stakeholders and community to finalise this new building.
