Have your say: Garfield North Community Centre

Published: 10 May 2022

Cardinia Shire Council welcomes your feedback on the concept plans for a new community centre in Garfield North. Feedback is open until 30 June 2022.

After strong advocacy from the local community following the 2019 bushfires, the $2.3 million project will be jointly funded by the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and Cardinia Shire Council’s Capital Works Program.  

As part of this successful grant submission, concept plans for a new multipurpose community facility within Cannibal Creek Reserve, Garfield North have been created. We are seeking user group and community feedback on these plans to help finalise the design. 

A lack of community facilities and places for social connection were magnified as issues during the community's recovery from the Bunyip Complex Fires, which occurred in March 2019. As the community recovers from the impacts of this natural disaster, the Garfield North Community Centre project is one part of a long-term, multilayered social support and community development process to support the recovery of the community, now and into the future.  

The new community centre will be used by existing recreation and community groups and provide a much-needed central meeting place for the Garfield North community.
