Craigieburn Community Centre

Consultation has concluded

Background

Planning for the new Craigieburn Community Centre has been informed by the Craigieburn R2 Precinct Structure Plan (2010) and detailed service planning undertaken in 2021 by Council in consultation with local agencies. This confirmed the range of services, and spaces required to respond to current and future community needs.

While the centre will not include preschool, there are services elsewhere in Craigieburn available for use by local families. Should the need arise, the centre is being designed for potential expansion.

A new Centre for Craigieburn

  • Large, multi-purpose room (300m2) able to be divided into three 100m2 spaces suitable for varied community uses and accommodate demand for larger gatherings; 
  • Training room; 
  • Two Maternal and Child Health suites; 
  • Activity room for playgroups, youth and older people.
