Faulkner Civic Precinct Community Centre Business Plan

Council unanimously voted to adopt the Faulkner Civic Precinct Community Centre Business Plan at a Special Council Meeting on 5 October.

The Plan will now be advertised for public comment for a period of six weeks.

City of Belmont Mayor Cr Phil Marks welcomed the Council’s adoption of the Business Plan for the Community Centre.

As the City is disposing a portion of the building by lease for the Fit Out and Operation of a Cafe / Restaurant in the Faulkner Civic Precinct Community Centre, the project is considered to be a major land transaction.

This Business Plan outlines the rationale behind the intention of the City of Belmont to deliver integrated cultural and community services to the Belmont community through the establishment of the Community Centre.

As a community hub, the Community Centre will allow for the co-location of the following uses:

  • Library and Digital Hub;
  • Museum;
  • Senior Citizens Centre;
  • Office space for Not for Profit service providers;
  • Café/restaurant;
  • Crèche.

Council is required to adopt the Business Plan and advertise for public submissions for a period of six weeks.

After the last day for public comments, Council will consider any submissions made and may decide to proceed with the transaction.

The Council must decide to progress the Business Plan before it can appoint a preferred tenderer and award the contract for the Construction of Faulkner Civic Precinct Community Centre.

“The Community Centre, as outlined in the City’s visionary Faulkner Civic Precinct Master Plan, will be a multi-purpose cross-generational, modern community hub that all City of Belmont residents will benefit from,” Mayor Marks said.

The Community Centre represents a major investment on the part of the City of Belmont to facilitate the delivery of community services.

Estimated to cost in the vicinity of $40 Million, to date the City has been successful in securing a $9,675,081 Federal Government grant and $3,837,557 grant from Lotterywest, establishing a significant reduction in the cost borne directly by the City.

The 2017-2018 Budget includes $15 Million towards the progression of the Community Centre.
