Residents in our City will now have another place to meet, socialise, learn, or gather with the official unveiling of the brand new community centre, The Hub@Bonnyrigg Dhanawi.

As our urban areas grow and yards become smaller, a safe space available to everyone becomes more and more important. On Monday, I had the honour of officially opening the community centre that with its large hall can accommodate up to 150 people.

The centre will be an ideal place for families, community groups, play groups or businesses to use for large family gatherings, meetings or hosting education courses.

The centre has an accessible commercial kitchen, meeting spaces catering to 6 to 80 people, audio visual capacity, a fully accessible bathroom with an adult change table for people with disabilities, office space, a wet play area for children and a beautiful garden.

The centre was built as part of the redevelopment of the Newleaf Estate under a negotiated planning agreement where the developer builds the centre before handing it to Council to manage for the community.

The planning for the centre started in 2017 with meetings being held between council staff, Landcom and Land and Housing Corporation to design the centre that is here today. We made sure the community was involved to deliver a community centre that you wanted with consultations at Bonnyrigg Mall and through meetings with community groups.

Community bookings for The Hub@Bonnyrigg Dhanawi will be available in the coming months.

With the addition of The Hub@Bonnyrigg Dhanawi, our community will have 20 community halls and centres across the City to book and use.

Our centres and halls are perfect places for neighbours, friends or family to meet and enjoy time together.
