Bellfield Community Hub on its way
Published on 12 February 2021
The new Bellfield Community Hub has kicked off construction starting with a ‘Turning of the Sod’ on 5 February 2020, with local MP Anthony Carbines joining Banyule councillors and guests.
The environmentally sustainable building will bring together many Council services and facilities in one large integrated Hub with:
- community garden
- community rooms
- social support areas
- adult education facilities
- kindergarten rooms and outdoor play spaces• maternal and child health consulting suites
- a social enterprise café
The building is expected to be completed by early 2022.
The Hub forms just one part of the Bellfield Project, with social housing and market housing sharing the site on the corner of Oriel Road and Banksia Street, Bellfield. There is also an urban farm flourishing next door at the Waratah Special Developmental School.
