Windsor Local Community Centre
Brisbane City Council is creating more to see and do through high-quality community facilities like the proposed Windsor Local Community Centre.
Council has developed a concept plan for the proposed centre, to be located to the west of the Brisbane Institute of Art on Grafton Street, Windsor. The project will deliver a facility that provides recreation and social opportunities for the local community.
|Address||Grafton Street, Windsor|
|Project outcomes||Develop a local community centre to improve liveability and connect communities in Windsor and its surrounding areas.|
Following community consultation in November 2020, a Development Application has been lodged for the new Windsor Local Community Centre.
Planning for new and improved community facilities, as an integral component of the city's infrastructure development, is crucial as suburbs undergo redevelopment and change.
In 2019, Council undertook an assessment of recreation and social needs for Windsor and surrounding suburbs and considered the current capacity of existing local facilities to identify the current and future needs of the local community.
The study confirmed a need for a local community centre in Windsor, providing an inclusive facility for the entire community.
About the project
With its projected population growth, accessible location and the emerging need for a local community facility, Windsor Park in the suburb of Windsor is considered to be the ideal location for a new local community centre. Windsor Park is a valuable community space and home to a range of sporting, recreation and community activities.
Existing infrastructure in the vicinity includes Brisbane Institute of Art, Windsor Croquet Club and Windsor Bowls Club with associated greens, sporting fields and lighting, and a playground.
The proposed community centre has been designed for a diverse range of community activities and includes multi-purpose meeting rooms of various sizes, office space, a kitchen, storage, amenities and outdoor play area.
Council conducted community engagement between 23 November 2020 and 13 December 2020 with the distribution of the project newsletter to residents and businesses in the suburb of Windsor inviting residents to have their say about the draft concept plan online, by email or phone.
The consultation results were analysed and included into the planning process to finalise the design of the new local community centre.
Council has now lodged a Development Application for a Material Change of Use for the new community centre at Windsor Park. Construction of the project, subject to approvals, is anticipated to commence in 2022.
