Does your organisation need a new building?
Council has an exciting opportunity for an organisation with community benefit, or a private group to relocate the existing Windale Community Hall located at 12 Lake Street, Windale.
Council may enter a cost-sharing arrangement up to the value of $20,000 for a not-for-profit or for-purpose organisation who is able to demonstrate social and community benefit. Council is also interested to hear from private entities or residents who may be able to relocate the facility however a cost sharing arrangement will not be entered into for these applicants.
The relocation and reuse of the existing Windale Community Hall is a strategic project for Council, which aims to reduce costs and support Council’s sustainability principles. The opportunity is an ideal way for a useful facility to continue to provide a service for the community.
If you're interested in exploring this opportunity further, we encourage you to download the information package(PDF, 815KB)
(which includes building details, external and internal photos), a structural condition report(PDF, 9MB) and hazardous building material report(PDF, 2MB). Then tell us a bit more about your proposal for building reuse in our online EOI form.
Council is offering to enter into a cost-sharing arrangement up to the value of $20,000 for applications from a not for profit organisation. Council will provide the building at no-cost for the successful applicant. In return, the applicant that receives the building will be responsible for all subsequent actions and costs in relation to transport, building approvals and risk.
We would like the transaction of building relocation to be completed by Tuesday 31 August to align with Council’s demolition and rebuild timeframe.
Council reserves the right not to proceed with this Expression of Interest of the project as a whole.
Council’s preference is to provide the building to a not-for-profit or for-purpose organisation that presents a reuse proposal that aligns with Councils values.
Council is also willing to be flexible in negating terms of agreement with interested organisations and is able to put interested parties in contact with service providers that may be able to assist with the relocation.
Expressions of Interest can be submitted online. Applications close Monday 26 July 2021.
If you have any further questions or would like to organise an inspection, please contact Council via firstname.lastname@example.org
