Bullsbrook Community and Learning Centre

The local community are invited to provide feedback on the City of Swan’s plans for a Bullsbrook Community and Learning Centre.

City Mayor, Charlie Zannino, said the City is planning for the development of a district level multipurpose community, learning and activity centre for the region.

“It is proposed that this community infrastructure would be located at Pickett Park in central Bullsbrook,” he said.

“The creation of this centre would support the notion of a ‘community hub’, a place where the community can gather and participate in a range of activities.

“The facility would also provide a location for the delivery of City services.”

North Ward Councillor, Kevin Bailey, said concept plans had been drawn up and would be presented to the community for comment.

“This will be an important development for Bullsbrook and we want to make sure we get it right,” he said.

“We will be hosting two community information sessions this month and anyone who would like to know more or provide input is invited to come to one of these.

“This facility is planned to cater for people of all ages – with a youth space, library, Place office and rooms for community and sporting groups – so it is important we also get feedback from people of all ages and interests.”

Cr Bailey said significant population growth was forecast for Bullsbrook.

“We are planning for an expected community of 26,500 people in Bullsbrook by 2036,” he said.

“Construction of the first stage is anticipated to start in 2014 and to be completed in the 2015-16 financial year.

“All current services/sporting groups will be maintained throughout the construction.”

The sessions will be ‘open house’ style, and held at Picket Park Hall on September 18 from 10am to 1pm and 5pm to 8pm.
