Council Seeks Community’s Advice About the Future of Your Community Centres

They are among the most-loved Council amenities in day-to-day use - but are we really getting the best use out of the Northern Beachesí neighbourhood community centres?

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said Council is seeking help from the community to identify additional opportunities so all of the community can enjoy the centres to their full potential now and into the future.

“Northern Beaches community centres are hubs of social activity and lifelong learning. We want you to tell us what you think about the centres - and help develop our strategy for their futures.

“Our community centres range from Allambie Heights Public Hall to Avalon Recreation Centre, from the Manly Seniors Centre to the new Seaforth Village Community Centre, from our new Tramshed Arts and Community Centre in Narrabeen to YOYO’s Forest Youth Centre - and many more.

 “Are the right facilities available in the right locations? What do you love about your community centre - and what gaps do we need to address?” said Mayor Regan.

The 40 Northern Beaches Council community centres host children’s activities, community support groups, performing arts groups, education and personal development, health, relaxation and fitness, sports and seniors activities among many other things.

The Council is undertaking a detailed study of current community centre uses, their condition and suitability, to identify gaps in their location and type - and find opportunities to improve their service to the community.

Council is proposing to conduct on-line surveys, host focus groups with key stakeholders, have consultations with current community centre patrons, and is holding pop-up information stalls to engage with the public at the following locations:

  • Thursday 20 Sept: Mona Vale Library, 3 - 6pm
  • Friday 21 Sept: Woolworths Dee Why, 9 - 11am
  • Friday 21 Sept: Stocklands Balgowlah, 2 - 4pm
  • Saturday 22 Sept: Forestville Shops, 9 - 11am
  • Saturday 22 Sept: Tramshed Arts & Community Centre, 12 - 2pm

For more details and to have your say go to Northern Beaches Council website. Online surveys need to be completed by the 28 September 2018.
