Narellan's premier sporting facility is about to undergo a massive makeover.

Construction on the second stage of the Narellan Sports Hub will start in the middle of next year with Camden councillors giving it the green light at last week's meeting.

The $17.3 million second stage will include the construction of 14 additional netball courts, an extended rugby league field, 1.5 kilometre walking and cycling track, floodlighting, internal roadways, additional parking and a dedicated athletics facility.

The athletics facility will feature an eight-lane, 400-metre synthetic track, two 10-lane 100-metre sprint tracks, a shotput circle, three high jumps a javelin area, a hammer/discus cage and four long jump/triple jump pits.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said she was pleased the revised masterplan for the future of the facility was also endorsed at last week's meeting.

"Back in 2014, we developed a vision to establish a regional sports hub to meet increasing demands and to take advantage of sports development opportunities," Cr Fedeli said.

"Now that the masterplan has been endorsed, staff will start on detailed design work, which is expected to be complete in early 2020.

"Council is committed to providing our residents with the highest quality sport and recreation facilities, which is why we've liaised so closely with key sporting groups and residents as part of this process.

"It was important to us to ensure the revised masterplan meets all users' needs."

Stage two of the sports hub is expected to be completed in May 2021.

The first stage of Narellan Sports Hub was opened in October 2017 and included 30 netball courts, an amenities building, a playground, access roads and car parking.

It also connected the existing hockey and rugby league facilities as part of the integrated sports hub.

Both the federal and state governments have contributed funding to the project.
