Flinders Civic Hall is being redeveloped to meet current and future user needs. Thanks to all community members and stakeholders that have provided input to date.
The facility will be home to a wide variety of community groups and services including: Flinders Art Show, Flinders Arts Group, Flinders Community Association, Flinders Lions, Flinders Probus and Flinders RSL. Classes for older adult exercise, palates, Yoga classes and other activities.
The Flinders Community Hub has been designed as a complete knockdown/rebuild on the Flinders Hall’s existing site.
The rebuild approach has been identified as representing the most cost-effective and value for money outcome, given the existing facility is reaching the end of its useful life.
The design reflects feedback from the current user groups of the Flinders Hall and other community members to meet their current and future needs.
Connected, accessible design
The Flinders Community Hub design includes the following components:
The design incorporates what users want to see in the new community hub, an upgrade of the already existing elements and provide a good connection between internal and outdoor spaces.
As the projects transition into the detailed design phase, the project management and architects will ensure the approach will be guided by the following:
The Shire received $2.15 million towards the Flinders Civic Hall redevelopment through the State Government’s expanded Growing Suburbs Fund.
Council allocated $200,000 to progress the design phase and will match the $2.15 million funding.
This provides a total budget of $4.5M for this exciting development.
After extensive consultation with key stakeholders and the community in 2019, Council resolved to provide the Flinders community with a new and improved building to meet the current and future needs of its users.
Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback to date, helping the Shire enhance and improve Flinders Civic Hall.
