Library funding announced

03 Jun 2010

The City of Melbourne has announced funding and a location for a library and community centre.

The council says the new facility will be built where the temporary Hub centre is located on triangular land bounded by Harbour Esplanade, Collins St, and Waterview Walk.

The council has allocated $1.25 million in its 2010/11 draft budget for the project and is looking for a matching contribution from the State Government.

VicUrban is seeking the matching funding from developers.

VicUrban’s general manager responsible for Docklands, David Young, said: “VicUrban is currently working with developers to secure a matching contribution for the $1.25 million committed by council.”

It appears that planning for the development has not been finalised.  Discussions are continuing between the council and the Government about what could be included.

While a library and community centre is a starting point, the prospect of adding an arts centre has been discussed.  It is understood that a budget of more than $10 million would be required and that the private sector would be approached to contribute in return for naming rights.
