A new multi-purpose centre will soon be built in West Wollert, supporting essential community services for the growing suburb.

Last week, the City of Whittlesea agreed to award a construction tender for the new multi-purpose centre to be located on the corner of Jardin Road and Meadow Lane in Wollert.

The West Wollert Community Centre will provide a safe and welcoming safe for people of all ages and abilities to access activities and resources, including early childhood education programs via a three-room kindergarten and Maternal and Child Health services from two consulting suites.

It will also feature a mini-branch library providing residents with access to Yarra Plenty Regional Library’s extensive catalogue, as well as work and study spaces.

Residents will also have access to a bookable community hall, kitchen and activity room, and amenities, including a Changing Places facility, outdoor area, and off-street parking.
Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the centre would reduce the need for residents to travel to other areas for services.

“This project is testament to our commitment to meet the ever-expanding needs of our community,” she said.

“It will be exciting to see this facility take shape in the coming years and ultimately become a vibrant place where residents can connect, learn, and thrive.”

The $15.84 million project is funded by council and the State Government through $6.75 million from its Building Blocks Partnership, and $1.5 million through its Growing Suburbs Fund programs.

The centre is expected to open in time for Term 1, 2027.
