The Shire is seeking community feedback on the future community precincts in Australind and Harvey.

Shire of Harvey Community Precincts

Shire of Harvey President Paul Gillett said the future community precincts in Australind and Harvey will deliver a huge range of benefits, from protecting heritage buildings through to the development of new facilities and services for all ages.

“The Shire is looking to deliver future community precincts that will help establish more local services, facilities and events within the region,” Cr Gillett said.

“The precincts are designed to cater for the Shire’s future needs, for our children and grandchildren to use.”

“The local community will be involved at every stage, creating an open conversation to ensure all ideas, thoughts and opinions are heard.”

 “It’s how we’re working together towards an even better lifestyle for the benefit of all.”

The development of the community precincts will be staged. Design and documentation will start by the end of this year. Construction of the first phase of the precincts is planned to start in late 2022.

Australind Community Precinct

The Shire 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.

The Shire is seeking community feedback on a preferred location and required community facilities for the concept designs to start.

Harvey Community Precinct

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 redevelopment of this precinct will create a path to the future while celebrating the agricultural history of the district. Heritage buildings within the precinct will be rejuvenated by repurposing and updating the facilities to become flexible spaces, with a multitude of community and civic uses.

For future development to continue, the Shire is now seeking community feedback on the completed draft master plan for the proposed community precinct.
