Project Overview

    Wyndham Vale Community Learning Centre

    Project Status

    A $500,000 Wyndham City project, this project to redevelop the Wyndham Vale Community Learning Centre is a currently at the detailed design stage, with construction set to commence in July 2017 and completion in December 2017.

    Scope of Works

    Council and the community have identified the need for improvements to the existing Wyndham Vale Community Learning Centre to meet the high levels of demand for existing services and to provide spaces that enable the expansion of Council services.

    Key deliverables for capital works for Wyndham Vale are:

    • Space to allow for expanded and better integrated services
    • Improve the location of the youth lounge to improve the connection to outdoor areas and community rooms
    • Better separation of “noisy” and “quiet” activities
    • Better use of common areas to encourage social connection as well pop-up displays or events.

    Minimising the impact on services and community safety are both key considerations in delivering the project particularly during construction.

    All services including the library and kindergarten are expected to remain open throughout the year; there may be some minor disruption during construction.

    Point Cook Community Learning Centre

    Project Status

    A $4.7 million Wyndham City project, this project to redevelop the Point Cook Community Learning Centre is currently at concept design stage, with construction set to commence in March 2017 and completion in February 2018.

    Scope of Works

    Council and the Community have identified the need for improvements to the existing Point Cook Community Learning Centre to meet high levels of demand for existing services and to provide spaces that enable the expansion of Council services. 

    Key deliverables for capital works for Point Cook are:

    • Space to allow for expanded and better integrated services
    • More space to support community learning activities - including more rooms for meetings, study and community activities
    • Better separation of “noisy” and “quiet” activities
    • More functional and attractive outdoor spaces with connection to nearby wetlands.

    Minimising the impact on services and community safety are both key considerations in delivering the project particularly during construction.

    The library and kindergarten will remain open throughout the year.  However these services may require alternate entries and other minor impacts to ensure community members and staff remain safe during construction.

    The community rooms at the Point Cook will not be available in 2017 due to extent of construction works.  Groups currently using the centre have been relocated to other centres in Point Cook, Hoppers Crossing and Truganina.

    This redevelopment at Point Cook Community Learning Centre alongside Wyndham Vale and Tarneit; is a Wyndham City initiative to expand Council services to the community. Each of these Community Learning Centres requires upgrades to transform them into ‘mini-town’ halls, making Council more accessible and responsive.

    Expanded services include:

    • Council enquiries and payment processing
    • Community learning and neighbourhood strengthening
    • Planning advice and building approval
    • Business development and entrepreneurial support.
