COMMUNITY groups, arts and craft groups, business operators or individuals with an innovative and community centric idea to activate Pinjarra’s historic courthouse are asked to contact the Shire of Murray.
Chief executive Dean Unsworth said the Shire was ideally seeking an outcome that would activate the property and adjoining streetscape and make the inside of the building accessible to the public.
He said proponents would need to demonstrate the use of the building would be of social and cultural benefit to the community.
The overall lease area is 271sq m including an enclosed rear courtyard and amenities.
The courthouse is prominently located in the central part of the main street, George Street, opposite Pinjarra Junction Shopping Centre and close to the Murray River Square and foreshore.
Pinjarra is currently the focus of significant revitalisation efforts and will benefit over the next few years from substantial planned public investment in streetscapes, community buildings, public spaces and an improved river foreshore, all aimed at enhancing the popularity and attractiveness of the town.
Submissions close on July 27.
Interested parties are encouraged to discuss their proposal with the council before submission.
The property can be viewed by appointment.
