The City of Cockburn’s proposed new Council and Administration Centre at Cockburn Central will provide equal access for all residents and businesses across the City.
The City needs community input to help guide this major development, and residents are encouraged to have their say.
Complete a five-minute survey at Comment on Cockburn by 23 March, or in person at Spearwood and Success Libraries on 19 March.
Planned since 2006, and progressed by a Council decision in 2018, the future centre will be located at a site on Veterans Parade, close to Cockburn ARC.
“Near Success Library, Cockburn Health and Community Facility, Cockburn Youth Centre, Cockburn Gateway Shopping City, and public transport nodes, the new centre will help connect the community to important services,” City of Cockburn Planning & Development Services Director, Daniel Arndt said.
“Relocation from the current Spearwood site at Coleville Crescent will better accommodate the City’s growing population and meet future staff needs. The project will not impact on rates.
“The Seniors Centre and Spearwood Library will remain at Coleville Crescent.”
Future proposals to Council will seek to improve facilities and breathe new life into Coleville Crescent. A larger, purposefully designed Seniors Centre, a modern library and a new Early Years and Family Centre are examples of potential development proposals.
Redevelopment of the current Spearwood Administration Centre, subject to Council approval, may also feature more residential and commercial development.
Improving the connection between the Coleville Crescent site, the community and Phoenix Shopping Centre will benefit the local economy.
“To better accommodate the community, Council is encouraging Phoenix Shopping Centre’s owners to prioritize updating and modernising its facilities,” Mr Arndt said.
“Both the relocation and redevelopment processes are expected to take a number of years to progress, dependent on public consultation and Council decision-making.”
