Community and Recreation Hub

For over 30 years there have been community discussions about the need for an indoor aquatic centre and more recent discussions have incorporated other indoor sporting facilities into the conversation.

The Community and Recreation Hub project will provide substantial indoor facilities addressing many community needs both now and for future generations to come.

It is recognised by all parties that the development of a multi-purpose facility is a significant undertaking and one that will require the collaboration and involvement of a range of stakeholders to realise.

Council has committed to work alongside our community to ensure that this development fulfills the needs and aspirations of all potential users.

Find out more about this exciting project by:

Do you have a great idea for the name of the facility?

Council is currently seeking input from the community to guide the decision. Submit your best ideas here or drop your idea into the submission box at the Civic Centre, Library and the Main Corner Complex. Up to appropriate five names will be selected to be put forward for a community vote.

We encourage community members to sign up for project updates or check back to this page regularly throughout the project development, participate in consultations, ask questions and provide feedback.
