The My Place youth centre is being moved to James Street, Pakenham. The new centre will be called ‘Cardinia Youth Hub’. The new 3 storey building will have counselling rooms, a hangout space, internet café with 8 computers and access to free WiFi, recording booth, classrooms and a rooftop recreation space with a basketball hoop.
This project is jointly funded by Council, the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and the Australian Government.
Construction contractor is continuing site construction. There has been delays due to adverse weather conditions. The project is due to be completed by May 2023.
