Willoughby Park Centre – Proposed Improvements

Consultation has concluded

The Willoughby Park Centre – located in Willoughby Park, McClelland St Willoughby- contains the Albert Chowne Memorial Hall, the East Willoughby Pre-School, the Mills/ Craft Room, and public toilets.  The building dates from 1929 (east wing) and 1954 (main hall), and is listed as a Local Heritage Item in the Willoughby Local Environmental Plan 2012.

The Centre has limited interior areas to provide for growing demands from the community.  Concept plans responding to these demands have been developed and are now ready for community comment.

Please have your say on the proposed improvements in the online forum below.
