258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge - Update on Development of Rear Portion of the building

Consultation has concluded

Council invites local residents to 'have your say' on concept plans for the next stage of development of the Northbridge Community Library building, located at 258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge.

The plans relate to the conversion of the rear portion of the building for commercial after school activities including tutoring, recreation, arts and craft with retention of the current art studio. The current use of the front portion of the building as a community library and meeting room are unaffected.

The site is located within a residential neighborhood with limited on street parking and narrow side streets. It is important that any future use of the site preserves the residential character and amenity of the area.

Northbridge is serviced by a number of Council provided multipurpose community facilities that are not presently being utilised to their full capacity. Please refer to the "Map of Community Facilities and Schools" for a full list nearby Community facilities.

Northbridge Library (258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge)
DATE: 21 February 2017
TIME: 11am - 12pm

This session provides you with an opportunity to raise any questions you may have about the concept plans with Council staff.

Residents and property owners can provide feedback to Council up until Friday 10 March 2017.

Background

In 2007 Council took possession of the 258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge building for the relocation of the Northbridge Library. The Northbridge Library has been operating since 2010.

The mezzanine area of the rear section of the building has been utilised as an artist’s studio, and has been made available on a short-term hire arrangement since early 2014. The lower portion of the rear section of the building has remained vacant since it was purchased in 2007.

A Development Application was submitted in December 2007 for use of the rear section of the building as a medical practice. The application was later withdrawn in response to a number of submissions highlighting concerns regarding parking issues that the proposal would create.

Council considered a report in August 2016 in relation to the Northbridge Property Plan and resolved to develop designs and seek feedback from the community in regard to use of the property with a particular focus on after school activities.

What happens next?

Your feedback is important and will be incorporated into a report to Council, forming the basis of decision making on the future development of 258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge.

Residents affected by the changes will receive a letter with information about the changes.

Submissions close on 10 March 2017. The final outcomes of the will be documented here. This will include a summary of all contributions collected as well as recommendations for future action.
