We are redesigning and rebuilding a brand new Ashburton Seniors Centre with the aim of creating a space that is easily accessible, and better suited to deliver the activities and services the seniors in our community need.
Construction is likely to commence in March 2019 and the new centre will open in 2020.
About the project
Hundreds of people enjoy activities at the current centre every week, through a range of diverse programs and interest groups and events.
However, the building is more than 50 years old and is no longer able to meet the growing and changing needs of seniors in the community, or deliver all of the activities and services that are needed.
The current layout does not allow for flexible activity spaces and the lower level is unsuitable for seniors’ activities.
The new age-friendly centre will be a contemporary and accessible facility that will provide opportunities for senior residents to form social connections and participate in life-long learning, both of which can have tremendously positive effects on an individual’s overall health and wellbeing.
Alternative temporary spaces will be arranged for all activities that currently take place at Ashburton Seniors Centre during construction.
Delivering what’s important to you
This project is delivering on the Boroondara Community Plan 2017-27, Council’s key strategic document for the next decade. When creating the plan, Council consulted widely and 11,845 responses told us clearly that you value well-maintained public places where people of all ages and backgrounds can interact, learn and be active.
