Status

Construction at 33-35 Fairholm Grove has now commenced, with the new centre expected to open in late-2020.

Programs, activities and groups usually based at Leighton have been temporarily relocated and are operating at various sites in Boroondara until construction is completed. 

Once construction is completed, Chambly programs and groups and the South Camberwell Maternal and Child Health Centre will be relocated to the new building in Fairholm Grove. These services are not affected by the construction work and will continue as usual at their existing sites.

About the project

Camberwell Community Centre is being redeveloped in response to community need. A new purpose-built facility is being constructed at 33-35 Fairholm Grove, designed to meet the demand for the centre’s popular programs and activities. 

Camberwell Community Centre is currently made up of two sites that are 1km apart - 33-35 Fairholm Grove (Leighton) and 405 Camberwell Road (Chambly).

The new building will be bigger and better configured to house all activities and services at the one location, consolidating the Leighton and Chambly sites. It will also contain the South Camberwell Maternal and Child Health Centre, providing a maternal and child health service in the middle of Camberwell for the first time.

The design of the new facility was developed following community consultation with centre users and staff, local residents and traders.
