Now is the time to have your say on the proposed $20 million Granville multipurpose community centre. 

Cumberland Council will hold a series of workshops, stalls and surveys, which started this week.

Council administrator Viv May recently visited the site last with general manager Malcolm Ryan and Granville MP Julia Finn to assess plans created by architects Design Worldwide Partnership.

The proposed facility includes a library, art gallery, multipurpose community facility and a variety of innovative spaces, including an audio visual room for music and video recording and editing, dance studio, a youth activity space and technology room. A children’s playground, outdoor barbecue area and two multi-use sports courts are also proposed.

“The current community centre is extremely popular and at capacity the majority of the time, so it’s exciting to be able to provide what’s shaping up to be a really impressive facility for Granville to rally around,” Mr May said.

Ms Finn added: “I encourage everyone to have their say so we can have the best possible local facilities.”

A stall will be held this Friday at Granville Library. The next workshop is next Tuesday, 6-8pm at Granville Youth and Recreation Centre.
