Hills hub development update
The Hills Hub redevelopment has been in planning phase for over twelve months with a wide range of community stakeholders making up the Hills Hub Advisory Group.
At this point in time the planning undertaken around the concept designs has stalled.
Council has been in discussions with the Mechanics Hall Committee of Management and are encouraged by recent correspondence indicating support for wider community consultation on a range of concept designs. We have received confirmation today from the Committee of Management that the community feedback will determine the preferred model for the Hills Hub redevelopment.
Council and the Hills Hub Advisory Committee believe that it is vital the community feedback is listened to.
The Australian Government funding of $1.5 million is still secure as is Council’s $3.5 million dollar commitment to the project and the Bendigo Bank funding of $250,000 through the Eastern Dandenong Ranges Project Group.
