Canada Bay Council has lodged a Development application (DA89/2013) to build a Council Office and Site Office on the park which has been designated as the “Community Precinct” for the Rhodes Community (30 Shoreline Drive Rhodes. This is the new park on the water near the corner of Shoreline Drive and Gauthorpe St).
This site was subject to a previous application (DA 630/2008 Development Application for Open Space & Public Domain) for the construction of Community facilities including Tennis Courts, Children’s Playground and paved areas. Council later had this DA amended to allow for construction of the current park without the listed facilities.
The Council is now applying to use this land for a Council Building rather than the outdoor Community facilities originally planned for the site.
The Council has further suggested that in the future they intend to use this site for the construction of permanent Council offices, rental halls and commercial properties such as Cafes.
The Rhodes Peninsula when completed is expected to accommodate a population of many thousands of residents and will be one of the most densely populated areas of Sydney outside of the CBD.
One item that most residents of the Rhodes Peninsula lack and need is a back yard. As council has continued to approve building of increasing density, it must also compensate the Community with open space. The Community Precinct has already become the suburb's “back yard” and this is what the Community wants more than anything for this area.
The area is currently used on a daily basis for sports activities, ball games, children playing, personal training, dog walking, social group meeting areas, tai chi, flying kites, etc. To use this wonderful waterfront location for the construction of Council buildings, further impacting on density levels, would result in a disservice to the Community and would be at odds with the purpose of the site, which should be, and currently is, for the benefit of the Community.
We call on the Council to work with the Community to develop the site for its original purpose of outdoor Community facilities, NOT buildings.
Annick School built in 1857 as an industrial school for factory workers' children through the 1960s until the 1980.
Strathclyde regional council made it a community centre and NAC in April 2012 want to demolish it to make way for a mini leisure centre the sound structure Victorian building should be allowed to remain as a community based centre.
St Paul’s Centre Project will create a unique, purpose built community facility in Aberavon. St Paul’s Church has been a landmark building in the Aberavon community for the last 100 years. St Paul’s Centre would replace the current hall within the grounds of the Church.
The design of St Paul’s Centre allows for innovative community cafe, shop and garden spaces at the centre of the building. Surrounding these ‘gathering’ spaces will be rooms of varying proportions available to groups to hire.
The project will bring employment to the local area in the form of a Community Worker and Administrator. Although the centre will offer first-class hire facilities, it will also focus on partnership-working with other community based providers to deliver a programme of educational courses and employment skills training.
In summary of the project, we aim to:
Demolish the existing hall.
Construct a purpose-built community facility.
Employ a Community Worker and Administrator.
Deliver a range of services that tackle, debt, unemployment, health issues...
Working in partnership with local community regeneration agencies/organisations.
Operate a community cafe, shop and garden.
Provide access to modern, multi-use spaces for groups to hire.
Operate a sustainable business model.

Academy Central is being sold with a primary school adding to the sense of community and a focus on eco friendly homes and living.

Leek's town hall, which was also the town's community centre, used for dance, meetings, local / touring groups, drama and productions was demolished over 20 years ago and has never been replaced.
The Foxlowe, Stockwell Street, Leek is a grade II listed Georgian hotel, with open land to the rear, is an ideal site to be developed as Leek's community centre, theatre, heritage centre / musuem, conference centre and cinema.
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council are in the process of developing Leek's masterplan, identifying future projects and locations. They have already identified their preferred site in advance of the Masterplan for a community centre as a new build on an existing car park in Leek, on a far smaller, inappropriate site.
