Current status

Last year we asked the Yarrabilba community to tell us their needs and what they want to see in the new community hub. We had a great response to our community survey receiving a total of 121 responses, with 57 responses from the community survey and 64 responses to the youth survey.

We also met with community groups, received feedback from local youth services and spoke to young people directly about their needs. 

Young people we spoke to would like to see more opportunities in Yarrabilba for:

  • sport and recreation
  • visual and performing arts
  • informal places to relax and share food, and 
  • computer gaming and coding. 

The wider community, including community groups and services, would like to see:

  • youth training programs
  • safe spaces and programs
  • events for young people, and
  • support services and counselling. 

We also received feedback about how to design the hub to be welcoming and functional. We are using your feedback to design and deliver a facility that can respond to community needs as Yarrabilba grows. 

Facility design has been completed and construction is anticipated to start in the last quarter of 2021.
