Camberwell Community Centre redevelopment

We are building a new Camberwell Community Centre at 33-35 Fairholm Grove, Camberwell.


There has been a delay to the project while options to incorporate additional onsite car parking for the new centre were considered. The plans are now being revised to include underground car parking, as well as parking at grade.

The 12-month construction process is planned to start in early-mid 2019 with the new building to open in mid-2020. 

About the project

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

Council is planning to build a new centre to meet the demand for Camberwell Community Centre’s popular programs, groups and activities.

The new two-storey building will be bigger and better configured to house all activities at the one location, including health and wellbeing, art and craft, languages, and computing.

We are planning a Maternal and Child Health centre in the new building, and parking on site for visitors.

Once the new centre opens, the community groups that meet at Chambly will relocate to Fairholm Grove.

Participants and user groups, local residents and traders have contributed ideas towards the new building’s concept plans and detailed design. You will have more chances to comment on the plans as part of the planning permit process.

Temporary relocations

  • Fairholm Grove activities and programs plan to relocate to the space above the Camberwell Market, and to 25 Inglesby Road, Camberwell (opposite the Council offices).
  • Chambly (405 Camberwell Road) activities will continue there until construction is finished. They will then relocate to the new Fairholm Grove building.
