Contemporary community hub could come to Hurstville

28/05/2020

Hurstville could be home to a state-of-the-art Civic and Cultural Hub, featuring a diverse mix of community, cultural, commercial and residential uses. The new Cultural Hub would dramatically transform Hurstville, improving both the lifestyle and amenities offered in the Georges River area.
 
At its Council Meeting on Monday 25 May 2020, Georges River Council voted to support the Civic Centre Site Planning Proposal for referral to the NSW State Government for a Gateway Determination. This will enable Council to publicly exhibit the proposal later this year.
 
Mayor of Georges River Council Kevin Greene said that the new facility would combine key Council services and facilities to create a modern community hub for the Georges River community.
 
“I am delighted that we are entering the next phase in the process for the potential future Hurstville Civic Centre,” said Mayor Greene.
 
“This modern facility would provide local residents with access to a range of centralised amenities, such as a Civic and Entertainment Centre, Library, Senior Citizens Centre and the Hurstville Museum & Gallery.
 
“We know that lack of open space is a key issue for Hurstville, and the new centre would comprise of at least 50% open public space, as well as cafes and a range of recreation areas.
 
“Featuring a mix of residential and commercial uses, the Civic Centre would also enhance the Georges River area’s economy and create more local jobs by addressing office space shortage in Hurstville.
 
The Planning Proposal states that no more than 55% of development would be residential, and community uses and facilities would comprise at least 25%. The site would also feature basement car parking spaces for the public.
 
The Planning Proposal includes recommended amendments to the Hurstville Local Environmental Plan 2012 (HLEP 2012) for the location of Georges River Council Civic Centre in Hurstville. This includes 3, 4, 13, and 19 storey buildings.
