Recycling win for new Kingston aquatic centre site

Site demolition for Kingston’s new Aquatic and Leisure has been completed, with 99.5% of the materials to be recycled, Kingston City Council has announced.

The Council says the great result serves to delivers on its commitment to provide facilities that are more sustainable and environmentally sensitive than ever before.

Mayor, Jenna Davey-Burns said Council, together with the local community, were focused on becoming the most liveable and sustainable city in Victoria.

“It’s absolutely essential that this project, our most significant ever, showcases that goal, and sets the example for all others to follow,” she said.

“As leaders in a changing climate we are fully committed to all our major projects being anchored in sustainability, and in line with that, our dedicated Community Reference Group and the broader community have been absolutely incredible in providing us with a clear and ambitious vision for the new centre.”

Along with the completion of the demolition, Council has unveiled early designs (pictured) for the new facility.

Melaleuca Ward Councillor, Tim Cochrane said that after extensive community consultation, Council was confident the new centre will meet the needs of the community now and into the future.

“Projects with such a tangible benefit to the broader community don’t happen every day and I’m so excited to see it come to fruition,” Cr Cochrane said.
