CONSTRUCTION of the new Baldivis South Community Centre has started.

The City of Rockingham appointed ADCO Constructions to carry out the project and work started this month.

Located at the corner of Borough Road and Lamorak Way in Baldivis, the project will take about 12 months to complete, finishing in the third quarter of next year.

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the 650sq m facility will be a multi-purpose venue capable of holding a number of groups and activities at the same time.

“With Baldivis continuing to be one of the fastest growing suburbs in the region, the City is acutely aware of the need for facilities such as the Baldivis South Community Centre,” he said.

“This exciting new development will include features such as a multi-purpose hall and activity room, children’s activity room, consultation and counselling rooms as well as a purpose-built kitchen, parenting room and accessible toilets.”

The project will also feature supporting amenities including car parking, landscaped areas and a children’s play space.[Edmund Teo]“Whether it’s for arts and cultural activities or playgroups, meetings and events, the Baldivis South Community Centre will be an inclusive space that helps bring the community together,” Mayor Sammels said.

“It will also provide additional and alternative amenities to the Mary Davies Library and Community Centre, which is currently experiencing pressure to meet huge demand for its community spaces.”
