Yamba is set to be home to a modern, spacious cultural and educational hub with the redevelopment of the Treelands Drive Community Centre.
Community consultation has informed the draft architectural design and the position of the new building will create a precinct integrated with the TAFE NSW Connect Learning Centre and Yamba Community Health.
The modernised centre will include a larger library, new art space, dedicated youth space, outdoor communal areas and additional public parking with acoustic fencing.
“The Treelands Drive Community Centre will be an important cultural asset serving the community for many generations to come,” Clarence Valley Council Acting General Manager Laura Black said.
The project is funded by the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, a bushfire support program co-funded by the NSW and Australian governments.
The development application for 24 Treelands Drive Yamba is currently advertised on Council’s website and open for submissions until 4pm Friday, 22 April.
It is anticipated the existing community centre will close to the public on 30 June, 2022 with a target delivery date of June 2023.
Council welcomes submissions from members of the community and industry stakeholders as this helps with informed and transparent decision making.
