Council wants to use the Hub

28 Feb 2012

The City of Melbourne is keen to use the Docklands Hub for community services after 2013 when its current activities move to the new library and community centre in Victoria Harbour.

In a report to the council’s Future Melbourne Committee, officers say the building at 80 Harbour Esplanade would be ideal for community services, particularly family services.

The building is owned by Places Victoria and the council has resolved to write seeking permission to continue using the space.  The council will also spend $25,000 putting together a fully-itemised business case for its plans by June this year.

In the report to the committee, the council says Places Victoria has indicated that a three to five-year lease may be possible, but it could not commit beyond this timeline.  It reported that “longer term” development of the site was not guaranteed.
