We are building a new Camberwell Community Centre at 33-35 Fairholm Grove, Camberwell.
In December 2018, a planning application was lodged and advertised for two weeks as per statutory planning requirements. A planning permit was issued by Council on 21 May 2019.
The construction process will commence in 2019 and will take approximately 15 months.
To prepare for construction, programs, groups and activities from 33 Fairholm Grove have temporarily relocated to various sites in Boroondara. These temporary arrangements will remain in place until construction is completed.
About the project
Camberwell Community Centre currently has two sites that are 1km apart - 33-35 Fairholm Grove (Leighton) and 405 Camberwell Road (Chambly).
We are building 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.
The design of the new centre was developed based on feedback received during community consultation, including suggestions and ideas from centre users and staff, local residents and traders.
Once the new centre opens, the community groups that meet at Chambly will relocate to Fairholm Grove.
South Camberwell Maternal and Child Health Centre will also be co-located in the new building, providing a maternal and child health centre in the middle of Camberwell for the first time.
