Hub site zoned for community

Hub site zoned for community Image

The Docklands Hub site will continue to be used by the community even after its current activities move to a new site.

Last month council approved funding for a Docklands family services facility to be integrated into the planned community boating hub in Victoria Harbour.

Docklands’ family services program currently operates at both the Hub in Harbour Esplanade and the Harbour Family and Children’s Centre in Seafarers Lane.

The planned facility will allow the program to be integrated into one site.

A report presented at the council meeting in March stated that the lease for the Hub expired at the end of June and could only be extended for three years.

City of Melbourne has leased The Hub from Places Victoria since 2007.

A City of Melbourne spokesperson said the initial indication was that the lease could only be extended for three years however it was now understood there was no specific time limit on the length of the lease.

Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said Places Victoria was in discussions with the City of Melbourne regarding a new lease for the Hub.

“The site is zoned for community or education use and Places Victoria will continue to work with the City of Melbourne to plan for the final use of the site, which is anticipated to be realised within the next five years,” Mr Wilson said.
