CONSTRUCTION on the Baldivis South Community Centre has been completed.

Work on the facility, which began in June 2018, finished about four months ahead of schedule earlier this month.

With practical completion accomplished, the City of Rockingham is in the process of commissioning and testing the facility before it becomes available for bookings in mid-April.

Once the building is available for public use, bookings will managed through the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre.

Residents will be able to book a number of spaces including the Banksia Hall (main hall), Grevillea Room (activity room one), Paperbark Room (activity room two), and Sheoak Room (counselling room).

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the 650 square metre facility was a multipurpose venue capable of holding a number of user groups.

“The Baldivis South Community Centre is an exciting new development that will provide Baldivis and the wider community with much needed spaces for hire,” he said.

“In addition to being a rentable space, the Baldivis South Community Centre also has supporting amenities including a children’s play space, car parking and landscaped areas.

“The facility will also provide additional resources for the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre, which is experiencing huge demand for its community spaces.”

Mayor Sammels acknowledged funding support from Lotterywest, which provided a $900,000 grant for the project.

“We would also like to thank Holton Connor Architects and Planners and ADCO Constructions for helping to deliver the project well ahead of schedule,” he said.
