Engagement and project history

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing quality facilities for the community, we are seeking to design and 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.

Work has commenced on the design phase for the Warriewood Valley Community Centre.

It's anticipated the concept design will be ready for community consultation mid 2020.

Council accepts the tender of Terroir Pty Ltd for Request for Tender 2019/118 – Architectural Services - Warriewood Valley Community Centre.

View the Council minutes, Item 17.4, pg. 29

A decision on the architectural services for the Warriewood Valley Community Centre will be made at the Council meeting on Tuesday 17 December 2019.

The item will be discussed in Closed Session.

View the Council agenda here, Item 17.4.

Tender submissions for the Architect have been received and will be evaluated during November.

It's anticipated a decision on the service provider will be made following the December Council meeting.

We’re finalising the architectural tender scoping documents and budget for this project, and anticipate concept plans will be available for comment by mid 2020.
