Opening on Wednesday 27 January, the newly built Cranbourne West Community Hub will provide the local community with a range of inclusive services and programs that promote community connectedness and address social isolation.
Located at 4s Flicka Boulevard in Cranbourne West, the state of the art dual level community facility hosts flexible and shared multi-use spaces for community members to connect, belong, learn and play.
In November 2020, residents and community groups were invited to share what activities, services and programs they wanted to see at the facility via an online survey.
Feedback highlighted requests for fitness classes, art and performances classes, school holiday programs and social activities such as community events.
Chair of Administrators Noelene Duff PSM, noted Council’s commitment to fostering and supporting community connections through community facilities such as the Cranbourne West Community Hub.
“We recognise community hubs and facilities as an important means of creating capacity within the community, as they provide a space where residents can meet, carry out activities and access local services in a safe and inclusive environment, which strengthens the life and connection of a community,” said Ms Duff.
“The Cranbourne West Community Hub will provide a fantastic space for the local community for many years to come.”
