Rooms at the Warrandyte Community Centre will be home to the Warrandyte Community Association and Warrandyte Community Retirement Housing Co-Operative, following a recent expression of interest process.

Other local community groups can also expect to be offered the opportunity to share the room within the centre to undertake outreach and awareness activities, as part of Warrandyte Community Association’s initiative, ‘Bringing the Community Back to the Community Centre’.

Warrandyte Community Association and Warrandyte Community Retirement Housing Co-Operative will also use the space formerly occupied by Information Warrandyte to host meetings to address local issues such as bushfire awareness, planning matters, environmental and other social community issues.

Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said that he was pleased that the Manningham Council facility would be able to support the work of the two important local organisations.

Cr Conlon said, “Manningham Council is committed to providing community infrastructure that is multi-purpose and well utilised. We currently own and maintain more than 200 community facilities throughout the municipality, including libraries, arts facilities and sports centres.”

Warrandyte Community Centre is conveniently located in the heart of Warrandyte and features quality amenities, including a large office/meeting room, a small storage room and shared access to a kitchen and bathrooms.

Community members are encouraged to enquire about hiring other rooms at the centre for family, social functions and weddings, once lockdown restrictions are lifted.
