A new community centre in Donnybrook is one step closer, with Council approving a proposal to build the multi-purpose facility that will deliver essential services to the fast-growing suburb.
The community centre in the Olivine Estate will cater for the rising demand for three and four-year-old kindergarten programs in the fast-growing north. The centre is set to include three modern kindergarten rooms.
The facility will also have a space for Council’s Maternal and Child Health Services and feature a community hall and meeting rooms for hire.
Donnybrook’s population is expected to grow substantially in the coming years, with the number of residents predicted to increase from just 232 in 2019 to over 52,000 by 2041.
Administrator Mr Chris Eddy said Council was committed to providing community hubs where people of all ages and abilities can connect with each other and key services.
“As our community grows, we recognise the need to plan ahead and deliver the infrastructure and services our residents need close to home,” Mr Eddy said.
Council will now start on the detailed design of the facility, which is expected to be built by 2025.
