Expressions of Interest - Northbridge Community Facilities

Consultation has concluded

Council is calling for registrations of interest from organisations and individuals interested in delivering programs and services from the following three facilities in Northbridge:

  • Warner’s Park Centre – the Outpost Northbridge
  • Northbridge Bowling Club Community Room - the Outpost Northbridge
  • Northbridge Library Loft Community Space (formerly Artist studio) – 258 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge

Submissions will assist Council to co-ordinate community access to a mix of, social, cultural, recreational, Out of School Hours Care and community activities and services, and will assist Council to allocate resources in a transparent and equitable manner.

The following key priorities from Council’s Community Strategic Plan underpin plans for the Northbridge Community Facilities:

2.7 – Promote accessible services for the community

3.2 – Create recreation spaces for all

3.5 – Maintain quality of life by balancing population growth with the provision of assets and services

3.6 – Activate local spaces in creative ways

5.3 – Balance the creation of new public assets with the upgrade of existing public assets

What are we doing?

Extensive stakeholder engagement and community consultation has established a proposal for the adaptive re-use of the Northbridge Bowling Club site.

The upgrades to the Northbridge Bowling Club form part of an interdependent schedule of works, including a recent refurbishment of Warners Park Centre. Council’s objective is to increase utilisation and community access to the Northbridge facilities.
