Community Invited to Comment on Creative Art Space North Concepts

Northern Beaches Council is inviting the community to provide feedback on two proposed locations for the Creative Art Space North - the Annexe Building at Dunbar Park in Avalon and Avalon Golf Club House.

In a motion adopted at Tuesday’s Council meeting, Council will also investigate funding options to enable the Space to be constructed according to its full proposed scope.

Plans for the Art Space’s draft concept design will go on public exhibition in October and November. Construction is due to commence in late 2019.

Mayor Michael Regan said given the volume of community feedback there was a clear need for a creative art space at the northern end of the peninsula.

“During the public engagement phase, the community enthusiastically embraced the initiative and contributed through more than 650 submissions, workshops and an Advisory Group of more than 30 participants.”

“On Tuesday night Council recommended both the Avalon Annexe building and the Avalon Golf Club House be explored for further community engagement as both have the ability to meet all user requirements and also meet the location criteria,” Mayor Regan said.

The renovation and additions to the building a Creative Art Space North in full are estimated to cost $2.1 million to develop the proposed Avalon Annex and $2 million for the Avalon Golf Club House.

With $1 million already allocated to the project from the Merger Savings Fund, additional funds will be required.

As the Avalon Annexe building is currently used as a community centre for hire, Council is committed to minimising the impact on existing hirers and will investigate options for relocating existing users.

The many users of the Avalon Golf Club House will also be consulted during the exhibition period. Council is committed to ensuring the golfers can continue to use the Club House in conjunction with any future proposal for the site.
