Project introduction 

About the project

Council is committed to creating new lifestyle and leisure opportunities and delivering vibrant, liveable communities. This project aims to provide the new library and ward office within the existing precinct with the community hall and Jabiru annexe.

A concept design has been developed and includes:

  • construction of a new 1000m2 library
  • the new library and ward office, located on the first floor
  • a terrace area complete with coffee cart and a separate deck also on the first floor
  • two new car parks, one located under the library and the other at ground level between the new library and existing community hall
  • demolition of the existing library, ward office and car park
  • relocation of the existing playground
  • construction of a turfed square in the centre of the precinct.

Council is planning to build the new library building in the car park area adjacent to the existing library to maintain library services during construction.

Project status

In order to progress this project further, Council lodged a Development Application (DA) for this new facility in mid-June 2018.

Pending DA approval, construction is scheduled to commence in late 2018 and anticipated to be completed in late 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Project benefits

The redevelopment will improve services at the Bracken Ridge Library including a larger library, enhanced accessibility features and improved internal and external facilities.
