Creating a fit for purpose, welcoming space that is responsive to the community.
We’re pleased to share an update on the Moerā Neighbourhood Hub.
Following investigation, we discovered that the current Moerā library building has issues with watertightness and needs significant repairs. Due to the state of the current building, we have decided to rebuild it, rather than proceed with repairs.
Early work on designs has given rise to a new idea on how to make the most of this opportunity while also following Council’s approach to resilience and sustainability.
Designs for the new building are being developed based on feedback from the Moerā community and their desire for a building that is flexible, inclusive and welcoming while also connecting to the surrounding community facilities. Having collated these needs via consultation, a new building which offers longevity, resilience and a flexible, larger, open plan design is more sustainable cost-effective option than renovating the existing building.
The existing building will now be replaced with a sustainable, relocatable, Greenstar, purpose-built facility which will operate as a Neighbourhood Hub, delivering a range of services including library services.
There is also consideration to refresh the wider Moerā Reserve where the hub sits, including the public toilets.
While the transition is underway, services including the library and public computers will continue to be provided at a temporary location in the area.
