Harvey Community Precinct

Project overview

The Harvey community precinct project will include the creation of a dynamic library and civic administration centre. Incorporation of the Harvey Community Resource Centre, Harvey Community Radio and other facilities will cater for growing population needs.

The current community precinct is at the heart of the Shire, with strong links to all community infrastructure. The redevelopment of this precinct will create a path to the future while celebrating the agricultural history of the district. This regional area reflects growth, enterprise and sustainability, all values that the new precinct will promote. Heritage buildings within the community precinct in Harvey will be rejuvenated by repurposing and updating the facilities to become flexible spaces, with a multitude of community and civic uses.

The final Master Plan for the project was endorsed by Council in August 2022 after extensive community consultation with the Harvey Precinct Community Reference Group. Consultation and informal meetings with all of the community groups, both in the town and the Shire as a whole will continue to take place as the design and development of the project takes place.

Community consultation

The Shire undertook a six-week consultation process during June, July and August 2021 to obtain community feedback on the draft Master Plan for the proposed Harvey Community Precinct.

The Harvey Community Precinct Master Plan is a dynamic long term planning document that provides a framework and a vision for the future growth of Harvey.

On Tuesday, 23 August 2022 the Shire of Harvey Council endorsed the final Master Plan for the project and endorsed moving to the design and development phase of the project.
