Council’s Director Community, Environment and Planning, Emily Harrison said work on the major art centre would be paused while the administrator reviews the project and determines the next steps.

“While the gallery is nearing completion, unfortunately this news means our community opening event, which was planned for 29 April, will be delayed,” Ms Harrison said.
