Oct 2020: Engagement outcomes
The concept plan was exhibited between 28 August and 27 September 2020.
We received 166 submissions on the proposed new community centre on the corner of Jacksons Road and Pittwater Road Warriewood.Community sentiment when asked if they supported the proposed concept designs for the new Warriewood Valley Community Centre, reflected:
The submissions have been reviewed, considered and areas of interest identified. Key themes include:
|Car parking||Use (types/ user groups)|
|Naming of the centre||Road and traffic network|
|Pedestrian, footpath and cycle way network|
Aug 2020: What's proposed?
The concept design for the new Warriewood Valley Community Centre incorporates best-practice sustainability principles to create a modern, resilient building with multi-use spaces.
The new community centre will provide additional space and parking to accommodate the growing Warriewood Valley Community.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing quality facilities for the community, we propose to build a new multi-use community centre on the existing site of the Nelson Heather Centre in Warriewood.
The project has been incorporated into the Warriewood Valley Development Contribution Plan Amendment 16, Revision 3 to cater for the increase in demand for new public facilities within the Warriewood Valley Release Area as existing facilities are already at capacity.
Over the past 18 months, we have engaged with local residents, facility users and key stakeholders to best understand the needs for the new facility.
At the Council meeting on Tuesday 25 August, concept plans for the new Warriewood Valley Community Centre were endorsed for public exhibition.
