Australind Community Precinct

Seeking community feedback

The Shire of Harvey has identified the need to develop a community precinct in the Australind area. The current library facilities and administration centre are undersized relative to the growing population in the Shire and there is a need for community facilities to be centrally located.

We’re seeking your feedback on a preferred location and required community facilities for concept designs to commence.

Three potential locations have been identified for the Australind community precinct, with an option for the facilities to be split over two or more locations.
